Martin UMO Fertilizer Opener

The Martin UMO Fertilizer Opener allows producers to position liquid fertilizers (such as 28%, 30% or 32% nitrogen) close to the seed row, with consistent separation to avoid seedling injury. Crops such as no-till corn usually need additional nitrogen (especially in a cool-wet spring) than just a pop-up product in the row, so the Martin UMO opener will help maintain early plant health and yield, until side-dressed applications occur.

The Martin UMO Fertilizer opener mounts securely to the face plate of a planter and allows a producer to position liquids 1, 2 or 3” to the side of the seed row. It can also be set to place liquids ¾” above, even with, or ¾” below the seed. The Martin UMO opener places fertilizer at a consistent depth in the soil, not into trash or on the planter.

The Martin UMO Fertilizer opener comes standard with a hardened fertilizer boot which is spring loaded against the disc to keep the disc free of soil build up.
