I plant no-till corn with a John Deere 7000 with 2x2 fertilizer. Years ago I ran 12-24-24 dry. broke a fertilizer coulter spring on the outside of the planter with 20 or so acres left on a Sunday. Didn't have a spare so I finished with that one coulter bouncing along on top of the ground. Never saw a difference in the corn where the fertilizer was on top. It happened again to me this year. Now I run instinct 2 and Urea 2x2. Planted 50 acres with one coulter on top of the ground. and again never saw a difference. I'm thinking the next planter I'm going to do in-furrow and dribble liquid behind the row on both sides.
