#PoaDay a virtual field day event hosted by members of university’s turfgrass and ornamental weed science team. The goals of the event are to educate turfgrass managers about the different strategies available for annual bluegrass control, Poa annua. This event is sponsored by AQUA-AID Solutions.
Compact disc seeder
The Vredo Compact series is an accurate and efficient range of disc seeders designed for inter-seeding into prepared seedbeds or existing stands of turf. At an approximate spacing of 3”, seed is placed in a V-shaped slit, at a controllable depth of 3/16” to 1” deep, directly in contact with the soil for maximum germination rate. The slits are then closed by a roller and a level surface is re-established. The Vredo Compact series includes precision calibration and a ground driven system allowing inter-seeding to be completed at speeds between 1 and 12 mph. Seed will be accurately sown at a set rate independent of ground speed. The Vredo Compact series are 3-point mounted and have two widths available to suit tractor overlap.
• Industry leading germination rate
• Minimal surface disruption – no clean up needed
• Proper seed to soil contact to maximize germination
• Each disc is independently suspended allowing continuous disc to soil penetration over undulating ground
