JP Series Clean Seeders
"It's priced right." says Dan Timmer, one of the owners and marketing manager of the business. "It's not the cheapest, but it's very accurate compared to other seeders."
The key is in the variety of rollers available for different size seeds. Other seeders have only five discs to choose from. The Clean Seeder has many more. Picking the right size is easy. Remove the lid of the seed hopper and spread the seed over the various size slots. The one the seed fits corresponds to the size of the roller to use. In addition to correct seed sizing, the rollers have 4 to 24 slots to vary the planting distance between seeds.
For hobby gardeners and small market growers, the single row 23 lb. model JP-1 is priced at $375. By buying additional rollers, it's possible to plant everything from very tiny seeds up to sweet corn. The seed hopper holds about a quart of seed and is easy to fill and empty.
More expensive models are available, including a 3-row hand seeder and toolbar 3-point hitch seeders for planting larger acreages. Fertilizer attachments are also available.
