Johnny's Seedbed Roller – 48"

Product ID:7706.07706

The perfect complement to precision seeders and mechanical harvesters. The heavy-duty lobster trap wire (which covers one solid, cylindrical roller) has a 1" trap wire mesh, spaced close enough to break up smaller clumps and dirt clods but wide enough to resist getting clogged with soil and mud. The roller can also be used post-seeding to press seed firmly into contact with the soil for improved germination rates; the trap wire mesh also creates a pattern of uniformly spaced mini-furrows that help retain essential moisture and resist erosion from wind, rain, and irrigation — unlike turf rollers, which create a completely smooth surface that is easily eroded. May be pulled or pushed. Handle is adjustable laterally to allow operation in-row or from either footpath. A metal rack on top can accept additional weight if needed. Developed in conjunction with Eliot Coleman. Made in Maine. One solid roller, 48" wide.
