Proper Seed to Soil Contact
- Seeds don't always land in the bottom of the trench
- Air pockets cause late emergence
- Keeton Seed Firmers firm each seed into the bottom of the furrow
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.
