'The Shrew' Knife Enhances Injection

Getting fertilizer injection into hardpan soils is easier with new narrow-profile design.

Published on: Apr 15, 2013

The folks at Shield Agricultural Equipment announce the new K-4TSDF knife, called "The Shrew" that offers improved results when injecting ammonia or liquid fertilizers in difficult no-till and minimum-till farm situations. The design profile of The Shrew provides a slim/narrow profile that pulls easily and requires less horsepower. The design includes a light and narrow wing that creates a soft pocket for an immediate combination of gas and soil. And the design offers minimum lift so there's less disturbance at ground level. You can learn more at www.shieldag.com/theshrew or by calling (800) 798-1968.
