    What does this do?

    Each arm has a hardened, chisel point which penetrates into the soil surface, releasing seeds into the resulting channel and ensuring good soil contact with the seed. The Seed Spider has a high work rate (up to 1 hectare an hour) and electronic metering of the seed ensures the right density of seed for the application. This high quality product is made by Seed Spider in New Zealand who specialise in high density seeding products for industries such as baby leaf salad/vegetable growing. If you are interested please view their website www.seedspider.com . If seeding is a requirement for you please also view our EBC electrobroadcaster range and LDS spreader range which will offer simpler, more cost effective options. If unsure about your requirements please contact Logic and we will advise you.

    Why do I need one?

    For equestrians, the most often used application for the seed spider would be in adding plant species into an existing sward. For example, if you wanted to add some meadow fescue (or any other horse-friendly plant mix) to your paddock to improve grazing, you would use the seed spider to ‘stitch’ the seed into the grass. Before doing this, it would be advantageous to thoroughly harrow the paddock first to remove thatch.Then the new seeds can make the most of the available light and moisture to germinate and thrive.

     

    Where do I use it?

    Paddocks, fields and any grassed area.

     

    How does it work?

    The hopper is filled with the appropriate seeds, then using the user manual, the electronic metering is set  to deliver the required application rate.  The Seed Spider is taken to the working area, the tips are lowered to the working position; then the Seed Spider is towed at the appropriate speed for the task.
