Keeton Seed Firmers gently press every seed into the bottom of the trench to place it firmly into the soil, to improve seed-to-soil contact.
Keeton Seed Firmers set the seed at the right depth and create consistent seed-to-soil contact. That leads to uniform germination, uniform emergence, and tests show, an average increase of six bushels per acre.
• Set seeds to the bottom of the seed trench
• Hit the depth you set on your planter
• Ensures uniform seed-to-soil contact
• Ensures uniform seed germination
• Ensures uniform plant emergence
• Research proves an average six bushel increase in corn yield

Get the money-making advantages of Keeton Seed Firmers for your drill, too.
New field trials show that Firmers make you money in three ways:
• Reduced seed costs. Improved germination means you get better stands with fewer seeds. On average, tests show a 9.4% increase in soybean germination.
• Increased soybean yields. Field tests show an average yield increase of over 7%.
• Lower equipment and labor costs. Apply liquids as you plant with Keeton’s integrated liquid applicator tubes. Seed savings alone will pay for the Keeton Seed Firmers during the first year. Then you’ll profit year after year from the additional yield. Keeton Seed Firmers make a dramatic difference on shallow planted seeds like soybeans. Firming seeds into moisture and improving seed-to-soil contact improves germination. So you can reduce seeding rates of expensive seeds while maintaining productive stands.
Why the Mojo Wire?
• 3x to 5x pressure of standard Keeton
• Ensures fast, uniform germination
• Large payback potential, especially in resilient no-till soils
• Quick fix for limp, again Keeton firmers
Mojo Wires fit most planter Keetons. Will not fit low profile tails.
NOTE: One drawback to increasing the pressure on the Keeton is that the tail wears more quickly. If you put lots of acres on your planter in a season, expect to completely wear out a set of Keetons with the Mojo Wire installed.
