The Polyplanter Jr..
for sowing seeds either through plastic or bare ground
Seeds can also be dropped in every other beak, thus doubling the spacing.
The Polyplanter Junior is a hand seeder that can be used by one person. The Junior will enable you to sow numerous seeds through plastic and on bare ground. You can plant seeds as small as coated lettuce and as large as lima beans.
The Junior is made from hard durable plastic and is a time saver. It is easy to push at a nice comfortable walking speed and requires no bending over. It weighs less than 25 lb. , so it is easy to carry and push down the row.

The three seed plates on the left are for small seeds like cabbage plus any type of palletized seeds like lettuce and kale or flower seeds. They fit into the insert on the right and than that insert fits into the planter thus cingulating your small seeds.

Spacings for the models
The new planter has some really nice improvements. 1: We have an insert that comes with three plates for very small seeds. 2: A second piece can be added to make it plant shallower. 3: It is easier to change the head from one spacing to another. 4: A part has been added to the interior to give it a better drop of the seed into the catch mechanism. 5: The seed hopper is made out of a much tougher plastic. And one other note, emptying the seeds after you're done planting is still a slight hassle, we are working on this.
Seeds the basic planter can plant are green beans, corn, sweetcorn, peas, soybeans, any large round seed, and all pelletized seeds.
These only work on the new planter.

We will now be marketing the polyplanter Junior version 2 an easier way, where you can pick and choose what exactly you need and only order those parts. This way it gives you the option for you to do what you want with it and not have any extra stuff laying around that you will never use.
If you want a combo model, say for example the 10 head and the six head, order the one with the larger number of beaks and then buy the parts for making it into a six head.
The feedback we have had from last year helped us improve this unit very much and we appreciate all those customers and their feedback. We are very excited with this unit and we think you will be too. For those who are only doing bare ground this pushes so much easier than something like an earthway and is easy to control where it goes.
