The Mid Row Shank™III Fertilizer Application System provides a viable option for Producers who want to achieve optimal fertilizer placement with a simplified, lower maintenance means to achieve one-pass seeding.


Mid Row Fertilizer Application with Simple Shank Design
The MRS™III C-Style Shank is designed to provide reliable mid row fertilizer application where heavy straw is not a limiting factor.

The MRS™III Fertilizer Application option is available on:

  • ParaLink Hoe Drills™ 10" and 12" spacing;
  • 5810 Air Hoe Drills (except the 5810-74) 12.6" spacing only.


The Mid Row Shank™ Fertilizer Applicator consists of an opener mounted to an edge-on shank which uses a hydraulic cylinder as a trip mechanism.

  • An opener with a ¾" carbide tip is standard supplied from the factory.
  • Apply any form of fertilizer by installing the appropriate adapter tube into the opener body.


MRS™III - Detailed View
The MRS™ design utilizes the tried-and-true hydraulic trip mechanism.

  1. The MRS™III utilizes a C-Style Shank with a ¾" knife-style opener, minimizing the chance of catching and holding straw.
  2. Dry fertilizer product is delivered through a 1¼" tertiary hose. The MRS™III can also be used with liquid or NH3 fertilizer.
  3. The hydraulic trip design provides easy trip pressure setting and the ability to conveniently lift the openers out of operation when not required.
  4. A two-bolt attachment system, with multiple mounting holes, allows ½" manual depth adjustments.

Opener placement is staggered wherever possible to minimize the chance of straw catching across the shanks.

MRS™ Depth Adjustment is achieved with the bolts that retain the MRS™ body on the MRS™ mount.

  • 5 positions on MRS™ upright provide 1" of depth adjustment between each hole.
  • 2 positions on the MRS™ mount provide ½" of depth adjustment.



Get Out of a Sticky Situation
The Momentary Isolation Switch provides a fast and convenient method of reducing draft or releasing trapped residue without disrupting the seeding pass.

  • If the drill begins to bog down, the Operator can lift the MRB® Fertilizer Applicators only and broadcast the fertilizer and leave the seed openers in the ground to temporarily reduce the amount of draft. Once through the wet spot, the MRBs® can be returned to the engaged position.
  • This feature is particularly handy for dumping straw that may accumulate on the fertilizer shanks of MRS™III-equipped drills.



Are Mid Row Shanks the Right Option For Me?
The iconic Mid Row Bander® Fertilizer Applicator and the Mid Row Shank™III Fertilizer Applicator are leading options for one-pass seeding with each option having both their strengths and their challenges. These should be carefully considered by Producers when configuring the ideal one-pass system that will best meet their conditions and practices.

Like the MRB® Fertilizer Application System, the Mid Row Shank™ Fertilizer Application System is a viable option for Operators wanting to apply nitrogen and/or sulfur between every other seed row.

Operators interested in the MRS™III option should consider the following important factors when determining which option to select.
