No Seed Damage with Gravity-Drop Hopper

Gravity Drag Hopper

1. Seeds feed under seed partition.

2. Seeds picked up as seed plate turns; excess seeds fall back.

3. Seeds drop through opening with gentle action of gravity. No brushes, knockers or fingers to damage seeds.

4. Spout delivers accurately metered seeds one at a time to the Deep Vee sword opener for placement.

Gravity-drop, inclined plate hopper delivers accurate plant population.

12MX Features

1. Deep Vee Sword cuts smooth, even seed trench and draws moisture to seed bed. The Deep Vee at bottom of the trench is of uniform shape and depth.  

2. Seeds are placed to uniform depth because seeds are trapped at the same depth in the Deep Vee.

3. Fertilizer is placed to side of seedbed where young roots will find early nourishment, but not before they are vigorous enough to stand the fertilizer.

4. Press wheel firms soil around seeds, but leaves a loose zone directly over the seed to ease emergence. Air is eliminated from the seedbed.
