     Designed in the USA, the PolyPlanter JR 3.0 is a hand seeder that enables you to sow numerous seeds through plastic and on bare ground. You can plant seeds as small as coated lettuce and as large as lima beans.  One person can plant an entire field using this planter!

     This is the original seeder, invented and designed in America by Ferris Farms, not a cheap copy.   They have spent years developing this seeder and improving it each year.   We are very impressed with the Polyplanter Jr and you will be too!

Latest Improvements:
  1. We have an insert that comes with three plates for very small seeds.
  2. A second piece can be added to make it plant shallower.
  3. It is easier to change the head from one spacing to another.
  4. A part has been added to the interior to give it a better drop of the seed into the catch mechanism.
  5. The seed hopper is made out of a much tougher plastic.
  6. Seed cups are now included for easy seed removal when you're done planting.
  7. The 3.0 is definitely a better model, better seed accuracy and better control to plant seed in center of hole.
Basic seed plates can plant are green beans, corn, sweet corn, peas, soybeans, any large round seed, and all pelletized seeds.
   The seed plates with small round divets are for pelletized seeds.
Each planter now comes with a Seed Cup.  That makes it so much easier to remove seeds.
The three seed plates on the left are for small seeds like cabbage plus any type of palletized seeds like lettuce and kale or flower seeds. They fit into the insert on the right and than that insert fits into the planter thus cingulating your small seeds.

Add-Ons for the 12 Head -- These Items are also sold Separately: 

  1. The Small Seed Singulator Kit (Cabbage, Lettuce, etc) comes with 3 seed plates and the insert 
  2. The Depth Spacer (AKA top plate) is used for more shallow plantings.  These are needed for seeds like cabbage and pelleted lettuce seed.  Order one per head (7 for a 7 head etc).
  3. 2 cucumber plates. Use the small one for pickling cucumbers.  Use the larger for slicers.
  4. Single Muskmelon Plate (Commonly Athena melons)
  5. Single Zuchinni Plate
