The optional 6mm tubing is provided for producers who may experience plugging issues due to applying a lower rate of fertilizer (2 or 3 gallons). You may not need this tubing; it is provided for producers not seeing a steady flow out of the tube due to small amounts of fertilizer being put down, or not enough pressure in their line. Push this tubing up the bottom side of the fertilizer tube, leaving approximately 1/4" sticking out the bottom. (You may need to cut the plastic tubing off after pushing it up as far as you can.) This will create back-pressure at the bottom of the tube.

Recommend replacing disc openers when you put our fertilizer tubes on.
