Hi All,

I wanted to get folk's opinion on pelleted seeds.  I use a walk-behind 
Earthway seeder at my farm and it does a pretty darn good job for most 
everything, with the exception of turnips, rutabaga and other brassica-size 
seeds that need room to develop.  As a result, I spend a TON of time 
thinning.  I've heard of pelleted seeds, but haven't ever tried them.  Do 
you think this would help remedy the shortcomings of the Earthway seeder for 
brassica-sized seeds.  Also, I've heard that pelleted seeds sometimes have 
germination problems...is this true?  And if so, would they we worthwhile to 

Thanks for your advice,
