MS Custom Built and Designed Onion Seeders
Monosem MS planters plant both raw, encrusted, and pelleted seeds, reducing seed cost and thinning labor. The MS metering unit has been specially designed for small seed crops. The meter housing is made out of brass and has a cast aluminum cover with an adjustable fiber seal to keep a tight fit. The seed is picked up by vacuum at a low point in the cover allowing the meter to plant even at a very low seed level. A shoe opener creates an extremely low seed drop to maintain proper seed spacing. The front gauge wheel provides consistent seed depth control while the intermediate press wheel and rear press wheel provide proper seed-to-soil contact for optimal emergence. The simplicity of adjustments make planting multiple different crops quick and easy.
