Ongoing improvements to the KINZE meter have been made. in many components of the meter and large investments Some conditions affecting seed drop that can not be simulated. have been made to produce meters in house to even more on a test stand include . rigid specifications and tighter tolerances than ever before . Overall condition of the planter especially the drive. Research and testing continues to ensure that the meters components where excessive wear stiff chains . are adapted to new seed coatings seed treatments and new improper alignments improper tire inflations etc . seed grading systems being used by various seed companies can cause erratic seed drop . Field conditions and tillage practices causing row. unit bounce and vibration can contribute to less than. optimum population and spacing accuracy , Troublesome hopper applied seed treatments are.

Much has been written and said regarding the accuracy If a new KINZE Finger Pickup Corn Meter is known to KINZE. and merits of different test stands and procedures More to have been repaired by any service provider other than. important than the type of test stand or procedure used is an authorized KINZE Dealer KINZE can not allow any war . the interpretation of those test results and the customer ranty claim for that meter The customer should expect to. service that results KINZE has always strongly encouraged return that meter to the alternate service provider for that. its authorized Dealers to acquire and use a meter test stand provider s consideration for their reimbursement of any labor. as a planter service to their customers While we offer and or repair parts . promote a KINZE test stand we have many Dealers providing.

Plateless seed in most cases is a mix of graded flats. and rounds of the same size Most sizes of plateless. seed will meter very accurately The mix of rounds with. the flat seed improves the ability of the meter to singulate. the flat seed , The easier the seed is to singulate by the meter the more. forgiving the meter is in regard to adjustment mechanical. condition and operating speed , Fungicide Seed Treatments.
Fungicide treatments change the finish or texture of the. seed coating and affect the meters ability to hold the. seed and meter accurately Captan a commonly used, fungicide for years leaves a rough or course finish on the. seed Newer fungicide formulation such as Maxim Apron. treatments have become very common and continue, to increase in market share Maxim Apron treatments. Even if a seed meter is in good mechanical condition leave a smooth polished finish on the seed which causes. and properly adjusted the accuracy of the meter can be underplanting especially with flat seed sizes Changes. affected by three conditions made to the 1998 production finger holder assembly. have greatly improved the ability of the seed meter to. 1 Size and shape of seed being planted accurately meter seeds with these new treatments . 2 Fungicide Seed Treatments, 3 Meter operating RPM. Size And Shape Of Seed,The seed meter must be able to singulate one seed. from a given amount of seed in the meter and drop that. seed at the precise instant to achieve accuracy of seed. placement The size and shape of the seed can affect. how difficult or easy the seed is to singulate , A small seed has a greater tendency of over.
planting than a large seed , A flat seed has a greater tendency of overplanting. than a round seed Flat seed can become locked, together or stacked one on top of the other. under the metering fingers and fail to separate, as the fingers pass over the indentation of the. carrier plate , Therefore a small flat seed is the most difficult. seed to singulate and a large round seed is the, easiest to singulate .

This can only be determined accurately with the use Erratic Planting. of the meter test unit This eliminates other factors that. could affect actual planted population such as drive A loose finger holder assembly will cause the finger. wheel slippage etc The ideal meter RPM range for any pickup seed meter to plant erratically The GA8343 wave. given seed size is plus or minus 3 of 100 on the washer is designed to ensure proper meter tension to. meter test unit maintain accurate operation of the seed meter With the. finger holder against the carrier install the wave washer.

If the seed transmission is set on the 1 1 ratio one seed at a time being delivered to the seed belt . the seed meter will be turning approximately 11 This may show up as doubles or triples The cause of. RPM per MPH of ground speed overplanting is primarily due to meter RPM being high. or excessive wear of the carrier plate at the indentation .
