One Row Seed Planter Help Question

Age is starting to catch up with me with the seed planting chore. I have been looking at the one row seed planters, looked at one at a local family farm type store but it looked liked a child's toy (nearly all plastic) for $99.00. Does anyone use one, do they work? likes/dislikes. Make? Seeds I mostly plant are corn, beets, peas, radishes and green beans.

Re: One Row Seed Planter Help Question

I assume you are talking about the Earthway seeder?

Have never used one, but have seen them being used from time to time.

I still use one for corn. Works great, sometimes drops too many seeds but it depends or the disc I'm using.

I use my neighbors and it works good. I think they are over priced for what they are. I know he has his for years so they must hold up. I still do the majority of planting by hand.

I was looking at one that would fertlize and plant at the same time such as in the link above. Best price I could find was around $129.00 on the inner net for this style. The one at family farm center was similiar to the one above, but I was not impress with it being nearly all plastic.

Earthway was my 2nd option.

Blueeagle; What make do you use?

I live in a rural area, closest place of any size would be Chambersburg. The store I looked at one was Tractor supply, advertising flyer just listed it as Garden Seeder $99.99. I'll check the innernet some more for Earthway with optional fertilizer bin.

suky: Does yours look more like the one at the top in my link above or the earthway pic at bottom in the link?
