How to Save Money When Buying Planting Equipment

There are several ways in which you can save money when buying planting equipment.

The first way in which you can save money when buying planting equipment would be by ensuring that you only buy the equipment from vendors who are known to price this sort of stuff competitively.

The second way in which you can save money when buying planting equipment would be by making a point of bargaining in an aggressive manner. The objective would be to have the vendor lower the price as far as possible. Another objective would be to take advantage of all available discounts (which you may not be made aware of, unless you bargain). Don’t take anything for granted. If, for instance, you hold a GM Card (whose discount figures are described in this post at cardforauto.com), you should consider charging the planting equipment purchase to the said card. By so doing, you’d indirectly be tapping into a huge discount – as huge as 5 percent – if you are foreseeing a situation where you may have to buy a GM vehicle some time in the near future.

The third way in which you can save money when buying planting equipment would be by making a point of shopping for the equipment at a point in time when you expect demand to be low. If, for instance, you are in an area where planting is a seasonable affair, and you go shopping for the equipment right in the middle of the planting season, you may be overcharged.

Two Ways in Which You Can Get Alerts That It is the Right Time to Plant

There are two major ways in which you can get alerts that it is the right time to plant. These would be alerts coming from weathermen, and from agricultural experts. They are important, given the fact that planting at the right time often makes the difference between getting a good yield and getting absolutely nothing, in rain-fed agriculture situations.

The first major way in which you can get alerts that it is the right time to plant is through the phone. Under this scheme of things, the alerts are sent in the form of text messages.

The second major way in which you can get alerts that it is the right time to plant would be through email. You can use your main, personal/official email for the reception of these alerts. Alternatively, you can log onto www.gmail.com for instructions on how to set up a special, purpose-created Gmail (mail.google.com) account, through which you can be getting the alerts that it is the right time to plant. The entire Google email sign up process shouldn’t take much time, and you can go through it as many times as you want, because Google doesn’t limit the number of Gmail accounts you set up (unless you are ‘spamming’).

Five Frequently Bought Planting Equipments

We venture to look at the five most frequently bought planting equipments. We will be seeking to understand the role played by each of these equipments. We will be further seeking to understand how the respective equipments perform their roles.

Top on our list of frequently bought planting equipments is the seed drill. This is a handy piece of equipment. It makes holes in the ground, puts seeds into those holes, and proceeds to cover the holes: thus completing the whole planting task cycle. This piece of equipment is often drawn by a tractor or some other similar vehicle.

Second on our list of frequently bought planting equipments is the one simply known as the planter. This works along the same lines as the seed drill. But it is designed to allow for greater flexibility in terms of things like row spacing.

Third in our list of frequently bought planting equipments is the broadcast seeder. This is typically used in large scale farming projects. It is used to broadcast seeds: which is basically all about spreading seeds randomly over a large field. Those are seeds of the crops that are meant to be planted through the broadcast method. It can also be used to broadcast fertilizers, lime and other things, besides its primary planting role.

Fourth on our list of frequently bought planting equipments is the plough. Ploughs come in many forms. And although their main role is that of cultivating, they are often also used in planting. This is where people make rows using the ploughs, those being rows into which seeds are subsequently inserted and covered manually, to complete the planting task.

Closing our list of frequently bought planting equipments is air seeder. The main structures in this planting equipment are the hoppers. The machine produces an air stream, through which it distributes seeds (to the designated rows).
