Since every spreader is different .... you just have to look at it and guess. If you think it is coming out too fast, close it up a bit. There is no harm in broadcasting over an area 3 times to get an even application, so error on the light side.

I plow and disc my ground then have my wife drive the pickup truck back and forth about eight ft. apart as i set on the tail gate with a cyclone seeder (hand crank) to broadcast my buckwheat, then i run the disc over it lightly.I've always got a good stand this way.:thumbsup: Jack
