If you are a beginning farmer, a homesteader looking to scale up, or even an avid gardener seeking to increase the efficiency of your labors─don’t miss Runamuk’s upcoming Jang Seeder Giveaway!
Beginning on Monday, October 16th, 2017 and running through Monday, November 20th, 2017, dedicated followers and new readers alike can participate to win a Jang JP-1 Seeder, thanks to our sponsors at Johnny’s Selected Seeds! They’ve even thrown in a handful of seed rollers to go with it, just to get the lucky winner off and running.
Seeders Increase Efficiency
Seeders are a huge asset on a farm or homestead. They make sowing those small to medium sized seeds a dream. A good seeder allows the grower to optimize spacing, save on seed, and reduce labor all at once. Many commercial growers today are using seeders to maximize the efficiency of their farms.

The Jang is one of the best models out there. It is a Korean-made tool that uses rollers and brushes to singulate the seed, and a couple of sprockets and a chain─just like those on a bicycle─regulate the seed spacing. It’s heavy enough that the seeder stays steady as it is propelled across the bed, and allows for a firming action as it sows the seed, creating a very good seed-to-soil contact.
The Jang is well-constructed and durable enough to last for years to come, with a long list of replacement parts available. Johnny’s even offers the Instruction Manual on their website, as well as this chart depicting the various seed rollers available for the Jang, allowing the grower to plant a wide variety of crops with this tool.
Check out this video featuring Paul Gallione from Johnny’s as he explains the parts that make up the Jang seeder, and how to use this tool:
