The study of fluted-roller seed meter, the commonly used feeding device on grain drills, revealed that the seed metering uniformity is impaired due to sudden release of seed batches. The use of multi-flight screws (augers) as a seed metering and feeding device for grain drills was studied. As preliminary test, 12 multi-flight auger configurations were designed and evaluated for seed spacing at three travel speeds. The uniformity of seed distribution was evaluated by a laboratory method using the coefficient of uniformity. The different auger configurations studied are the auger groove depth and width, number of flights, auger outer diameter and rotational speed.
