Virginia thank you for considering the Agri-Fab Drop Spreader for your lawn care needs. Unfortunately, larger seeds such as soy beans or peas will not work with the drop spreader. The drop spreader will work best with product that is no larger than a piece of rock salt or smaller.

It would not be recommended to be used in this application. Any powder type product would just pack in there and not flow.

I have used mine on a few occasions for that exact purpose. I found that it does work even though it doesn't look like enough is being dropped. The ash becomes a fine powder and drops a lot like hydrated lime which they don't recommend in this spreader because it doesn't flow well enough. I've spread both and found acceptable, but not optimal, results.

Thank you for interest in the Agri-Fab Drop Spreader for your lawn care needs. The drop spreader is designed to spread granular herbicide, grass seed, fertilizer and pelletized lime. Sand is too fine and will just fall through the opening
