KEETON SEED FIRMERS

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.

Seed-to-Soil Contact Made Easy

Seeds don’t always land in the bottom of the trench where they belong.

This can leave an air pocket underneath them, not allowing them to take up moisture as fast as they

could.  That leads to late germination and emergence, and finally, loss of yield. The Keeton Seed Firmer firms the seed to the bottom of the furrow and improves seed-to-soil contact.

Uneven seed germination and uneven plant emergence sap yields. Plants coming up even a little late can’t compete with their neighbors for resources and they’re vulnerable to heat stress and insects.

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.

The Exapta Mojo Wire stiffener supplies up to 3 times the pressure to the standard Keeton. In testing and customers’ experience, there has been a much better germination consistency —both in terms of higher percentages of seeds emerging, and in uniformity of timing of emergence.  Another noticeable improvement was in the self-cleaning action of the Keeton against the furrow sidewalls.
