Valion Seed Tube Guards For No Till Planters

For no till planting to produce uniform plant emergence, you need to have consistent seed depth, throughout the fields.

Why We Designed The Valion Seed Tube Guards
By reducing the blade flex on your planter, you have a greater chance of getting all the seeds to a uniform depth, which is part of the secret to uniform plant emergence—which has been proven in numerous tests to produce the highest crop yields.

We designed the Valion Seed Tube Guards to eliminate seed tube wear, to greatly reduce blade flex, and to outlast all other seed tube guards on the market!

We designed a chrome alloy Valion Seed Tube Guard, which can outlast the original equipment manufacturers’ (OEM) guards by two to three times.

And then, we decided to out-do ourselves, by inventing a Valion Ultra Seed Tube Guard, made out of tungsten carbide, that will last the life of your planter!

We have the chrome alloy seed tube guards and tungsten carbide seed tube guards available for John Deere, Kinze, and Harvest International planters (also, Monosem planters with Kinze row units).
