Reduce time-consuming thinning and increase planting uniformity by seeding pelleted onions with a precision seeder. Our onion seeds are coated with a Natural seed enhancement and then pelleted with inert NOP-compliant materials. These pellets are size 13.0, are ideal for direct sowing, and can be planted with Stanhay seeders (belt size 13.0) or any of the precision seeders offered by Johnny's. For best results, we recommend consistent soil moisture during the germination period. Pelleted seed must be kept cool and dry prior to planting, and should be used within one year of purchase. AVG.
