Rebounder Seed Deflectors funnel all seeds to the center of the seed trench.
Uneven seed spacing and inconsistent depth placement are two of the top contributors to decreased yields. Inconsistent depth placement occurs with seeds landing 3/4” to 1-3/4” deep. Shallow-planted seeds can cause poor root structure and reduced yields.
The Rebounder is a simple-yet-effective planting attachment that improves the accuracy and uniformity of in-furrow seed placement by funneling all seeds to the center of the seed V. This eliminates seed bounce, resulting in seeds being flipped on top of the soil.
As the double discs on a planter open a seed V in wetter, heavier soils, they tend to “orange peel” the side wall. Seeds can lodge on the side wall and not get all the way to the bottom of the seed V.
The Rebounder has a unique, spoon shape design that forms to the V-shape of the furrow. This works in conjunction with the furrow’s V-shape rather than against it.
The Rebounder’s spoon shape design flows gently down the furrow, not disturbing the soil or creating any additional compaction around the seed. The spoon shape design gradually narrows as it drops below the topsoil surface to follow the V-shape that is created by the double disc openers.
The distinct half-moon notch on the bottom tip of the Rebounder allows it to run 3/8” off the bottom of the furrow. Because the Rebounder does not drag the bottom of the seed bed, it will not build up with mud.
On most planters, the Rebounder attaches to the seed tube, utilizing two furnished cable ties. The Rebounder is designed to serve as an extension of the seed tube, and works with the seed tube rather than against it. The Rebounder functions as a stabilizer that keeps the seed tube in the center of the furrow. When mounted to the seed tube, the Rebounder puts less than one pound of pressure on the seed tube while planting. This small amount of pressure in the seed furrow eliminates mud from building up when planting in heavy, wet and textured soils.
