Belco Resources Equipment - Seeding Equipment - Greenscape Conservation Seeder

The Greenscape Conservation Seeder represents a totally new concept in seeding. Being neither a grain drill nor a PTO driven seeder, the Greenscape effectively prepares the soil, drops and lightly covers the seed, and firmly presses the soil for a perfectly prepared seedbed. It is designed to achieve a perfect pattern across the working width of the machine; no row effect as with drills of knife type overseeders. This machine will seed into all conditions, including primary seeding into prepared ground or overseeding into existing vegetation. Best of all, it's all ground driven - no PTO shafts or gearboxes to maintain, and requires only a 30 horsepower tractor to operate. When equipped with the optional precision small seed boxes, the Greenscape will plant vitually any type or size seed at any rate that you desire. Available in 60" & 84 ".

Seed Sizes:

Legume Seedbox (small hopper):
All small round types seeds that flow easily and are generally plantly at a fairly low rate, typically from as low as 3 lbs. per acre to about 65 lbs. per acre. This would include all clover, alfalfa, brassicas and many flowers that have seed counts from about 100,000 seeds/lb to well over 7,000,000 seeds/lb. The seed size diameter would be from about 3/16" (5 mm) to as small as 1/128" (0.019 mm).

Large Seedbox:
All cereal grains, rye, wheat, oats barley and rice. Any seeds that are irregular shaped (elongated, rice shape) but still flow easily should be planted with this box. Most cool season grasses, such as fescue, ryegrass and bluegrass would be planted with this box. All types of beans, peas, corn and sunflowers can be planted with this box. Seed sizes would be from about 3/8" (9.5 mm) elongated up to about 3/8" (9.5 mm) diameter round. Seeding rates are typically from about 25 lbs. per acre to 400 lbs. per acre

Native Grass Seedbox:
Any seed that does not flow well because of chaff, beards, trash, etc should be planted in this box. This includes many annual and perennial warm season native grasses that are very light and fluffy. Any seed type that will not flow easily through your fingers when held apart would need to go in this box. Seeding rates typically are from 8 to 100 lbs. per acre.
