Milner, GA (May 3, 2021) Among the many features that make Ranew’s Outdoor Equipment Firminator all-in-one food plot implement the most versatile piece of equipment in the industry is its Accu-Seed System. It allows the Firminator to handle any seed sizes from large corn, soybeans, peas and sunflowers down to the tiniest clovers, without seed waste or need to change seed hoppers.
When planting food plots, seed blends are often a better option than monoculture. Different plant species grow and reach peak nutrition at different rates, and providing a more diverse crop expands when your plots will be most attractive to wildlife. Different plants also have different tolerance for environmental conditions, and a blend ensures at least some will be able to withstand fluctuations like drought or flooding and early or late frosts.
However, different plants can sometimes have vastly different seed sizes. Accommodating them can be problematic for conventional food plotting equipment where larger seeds may get stuck or smaller seeds will spill through too quickly. It may require multiple implements and time-consuming adjustments or result in costly seed waste.
The Firminator’s Accu-Seed System ensures that won’t be the case. It allows you to adjust the metering openings in one-sixteenth-inch graduations until you find the proper selections for the largest seed in your blend. As you move forward, the seed is dropped into a specially designed baffle that thoroughly distributes the seed right in front of the culti-packer to enhance seed-to-soil contact for better germination rates and protection from wind deflection. Because the system is ground-driven, the seed is metered out relative to the speed you travel. Even better, when the Firminator stops rolling, the seed stops falling. You won’t have to worry about wasting smaller seeds that may continue to spill out of other hoppers.
With the optional seed hopper agitator, you can even spread blends with extreme size differences in a single pass. The agitator helps keep seed thoroughly mixed and prevents smaller seeds from sifting through too quickly.
