Description

Reports on a three-year field trial examining how the interaction of opener design, packer shape, and on-row packing pressure influence crop emergence and grain yield of wheat, canola and field pea. Results show that the advantages of matching openers and packers were minor and would likely result in little economic significance to most farmers.
