The small seeds box is designed to meter various small seeds.

Optional Rear Spike Roller

Opens ground surfaces covered with heavy vegetation and/or grasses to allow seed to make contact with the soil. Allows planting over existing grass without killing the grass. Mud scrapers reduce build-up when working in wet, sticky, or trashy soil.

Optional Rear Packer Roller

Cast notched packer rings press seed into full contact with soil that has been worked into a seed bed. Mud scrapers reduce build-up when working in wet, sticky, or trashy soil.
