A wise man once said “Take care of the little things and the big things will look after themselves”. There are many parts of the row unit that combine to ensure seed placement is exactly where you want it. Seed Firmers are one piece of this puzzle that can make big improvements to germination for little expense. Seeds don’t always land in the bottom of the trench where they belong. This can leave an air pocket underneath them, not allowing them to take up moisture as fast as they could. This leads to late germination and emergence, and finally, loss of yield. Keeton seed firmers gently press every seed into the bottom of the trench to tuck it firmly in the soil, ready to take in moisture and heat it needs.
The new Non-stick Keeton Seed Firmers are a simple attachment to your planter and have a quick release tab to take them on and off within seconds. Liquid can also be applied through the firmer which places it directly on top of the seed..
