QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • What size seed plate for non pelletizes lettuce seed?

    It will need to be pelleted in order for it to be the proper shape to work well with the drop seeder.

  • How do you prevent multiple seeds from filling one hole?

    Here are a few things that can be done to help.
    Using a dryer sheet to discharge the static electricity.  Making sure the seed plate is appropriately sized.  If the holes are too large you will get multiple seeds per hole.  If it is sized approprialty only one seed will fit in the hole.  Also you don't want to over fill the hopper with seeds in the drop seeder. 

  • What size hole for the drop seeder would we need for pelleted lettuce?

    For most pelleted seeds (including lettuce) we believe 4.5mm will work the best.
