*In Beck’s 2014 Practical Farm Research (PFR)® study, Flo-Rite™ seed firmers showed a 6.4 Bu./A. advantage
for corn. The key to this yield increase is the exceptional depth control and seed-to-soil contact resulting in
more consistent stands.
Below, a Flo-Rite customer had Schaffert Rebounders on his front splitter units and Flo-Rite seed firmers on
his back row units. This photo shows that he saw a three to five day emergence advantage for the Flo-Rite
seed firmers and an increase in the final population. Better seed-to-soil contact results in quicker emergence.
