Montag Manufacturing, a leading provider of nutrient placement solutions is based at Emmetsburg, Iowa. The company announced the introduction of the GEN II Nutrient Metering System.

The GEN II is the next generation of nutrient metering and provides greater performance and accuracy than prior products, according to the company. Greater performance and accuracy along with greater serviceability are just a few of the improvements that have been made. The new metering system is designed so that rows can be added easily.

"This new product addresses the needs of the agricultural industry as well as product improvements that we have been working on and are really excited about bringing to the market," said Anthony Montag, general manager. "Today, it is very difficult for producers to find valid ways to reduce costs that can be reflected in the bottom-line. A decrease in the amount of fertilizer that is applied is a great option to reduce cost for most producers."

Montag continued, "The real key innovative feature of this GEN II product is the ability to add rows and configure drives. You (producers) can now invest in a metering platform that can be adapted to your operation as it evolves and grows for years to come."

Montag Manufacturing is a family-owned company providing nutrient placement technology and equipment to the agriculture market. Montag is a partner with some tillage original equipment manufacturers and has a growing dealer network to serve customers.

Many of the products manufactured by Montag are equipment used by custom applicators of nutrients, not just farmers.
