Easy To Use Seed Calibration Gauge
Here's an easy to use gauge for checking the seeding rate of grain drills.
Invented by Len Digney, Raymore, Sask., the gauge is a 1-in. dia. plastic tube calibrated to bushels.
To use, you release one drill spout, insert the slip-in gauge, then drive ahead a preselected rate.
Digney includes a chart for telling the proper distance. For a drill with 6 in. spacing you'd drive 150 ft., 90 ft. for 10 in. spacing and so on.
At the end of the test pass, remove the gauge and check the reading which tells you how many bushels you're seeding per acre.
Digney says the gauge is accurate for all types of seed. Sells for $4.00.
