In recent years, Pat Duncanson usually ends up with more planter capacity than his farm needs. But, in years when time is tight, or when the Mapleton, Minnesota, farmer has decided to bump up corn acres, that extra planter capacity comes in very handy.

But, for Duncanson, who chatted with Successful Farming Crops Technology Editor Gil Gullickson last spring for the Corn High Yield Team, it's not just all about the planter. He carefully measures his equipment and machinery dollars to get the most payback. "We like to make sure the key pieces of equipment that really have a strong payback to yield are in as good of shape possible," he says.
