Quickly and accurately seed all 264 holes of the paper chain pot in seconds.
Just imagine seeding 264 holes one by one by hand versus seeding all 264 holes in one quick step. The drop seeder is another piece of appropriate technology which saves you money by decreasing labor and controlling seed waste.
Not a required piece of equipment, but when the drop seeder is combined with the rest of the paperpot system efficiency and time savings are increased.
Note: The drop seeder is specifically designed for the hole spacings of the paper chain pots and will not work with a standard 10/20 flat unless you cover some of the holes with tape.
This seed plate has 4.5mm holes designed for medium seeds such as radish, beets, carrots, green onion, Salanova, and head lettuce.
When using with kale you will have about 4-5 seeds per hole and will drop 4.1g of seed.
When using with radish you will have about 1-2 seeds per hole and will drop 4.2g of seed.
Tiny seeds like amaranth will work in the seeder, but based on our trials static electricity creates some issues, so with tiny seeds like amaranth, it may be easier to seed by hand if you are doing multiple flats.
We also sell 4.5mm hole drop seeder as part of our Paperpot System Starter Kit.
