Our shop foreman, Andy, is out planting his fields that were harvested with a Calmer-Built Corn Head equipped with BT Chopper® chopping stalk rolls in the fall.  Listen along to the video as he describes his ‘very basic’ planter setup that is easy to use when planting between rows and into Calmer BT Chopper Confetti residue.   The two inch split and chopped pieces have naturally degraded over winter to allow for a beneficial ground cover and soil enriching decay.
