Among the many features that make Ranew’s Outdoor Equipment Firminator an all-in-one food plot implement the most versatile piece of equipment in the industry is the Accurate Seeding 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.
Planting seed blends are often a better option. It provides a greater variety of plants to widen the window of your food plots’ attractiveness and a hedge against environmental fluctuations like early or late frosts or varying amounts of rainfall. However, different plants sometimes have very different sizes of seeds and accommodating a range of seed sizes can be problematic for conventional food plotting equipment. This is especially true when using smaller seed-like clover, which is often part of the more popular wildlife food plot blends.
The Firminator’s Accurate Seeding Seed System ensures that won’t be the case. Once you fill the seed hopper, you can adjust the metering openings in one-sixteenth-inch graduations until you find the proper selection for the largest seed. Then let the Accurate Seeding System do the rest. As you move forward, a seed is dropped into a specially designed baffle that thoroughly distributes it in front of the culti-packer, which then rolls over the seed and compacts soil, enhancing 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 so you can control the seeding rate, another plus when using smaller seeds. When you stop, the seed stops falling, so you won’t have to worry about wasting smaller seed-like clover 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.
