Keeps the Rain Out
Central Commodities ( Air Drill ) Hopper Cover
These covers perfectly fit John Deere's 1990 CCS Air Drill Planter. They are placed over the seed hopper and keep water, snow, or pests from entering. During extreme waterfall, the water will run down due to the slick surface. The covers are constructed with the same 18oz coated vinyl that we use on other industrial and agricultural covers.
Seams are RF dielectrically welded which is much stronger than stitching and completely water tight. Features brass grommets along bottom hem for bungee straps to secure it. This cover is fitted and will not bind when arms are folded in.

A farmer might want to use seed hopper covers on their planters for several reasons. To keep the seeds from being exposed to environmental conditions like rain, snow, and wind. Seed hopper covers can help prevent moisture from entering the seeds, which could otherwise cause the seeds to germinate too soon or harm them.
Also given the cost of expensive fuel, some farmers were to leave the planters in the field so they can use these planter hopper covers to protect the seeds. Another advantage, is to stop animals like mice, birds, and other animals from eating the seeds from the hopper. Additionally, seed hopper covers can aid in decreasing seed waste, which can ultimately help farms save money.
Overall, using seed hopper covers can help farmers secure their seed stock, encourage strong plant development, boost yields, and cut down on seed waste, all of which can improve financial results and make farming operations more sustainable.
