Plant-o-vator® Seed bed

Shallow seeding—no “tilled” seed bed and no deep fertilizer placement.

End view below shows 12" row centers, 9" between cultivated areas. 

Soil fractures are created by opening shanks—resulting in total renovation. 

Fertilizer with aid of rain water migrates under roots from one row to the other row.
