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 does not have very much room between the auger and sidewalls, it looks to me like it may grind up soy bean seed a bit.

Question

Can I spread Caseron?

I burned up two of the Scott's hand held whirly bird type of fertilizer spreaders spreading Caseron. I have about an acre of gravel that needs this or another pre-emergent spread and broadcasting by hand it too tedious and not consistent.

Given that the two Scotts devices couldn't handle something about Caseron I want to make sure that type of granual will work with this spreader.

Thank you.

there is not much clearance between the auger and the sidewalls. maybe 1/4 inch. it would probably stick if it was very wet

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.
