Seed counting machines are also known as seed counters. These machines are used for counting seeds for packaging and research activities and generally provide total counts of seeds, or lot sizes for packaging. Conventionally, the seed packaging industry used to pack seeds on the basis of weight and by using weighing scales. However, seeds were sold as units though seeds were packed on the basis of weight. Seed suppliers used to add a safety margin to the packages in order to ensure the accurate quantity of seeds. This safety margin resulted in loss of revenue for seed suppliers. The seed counting machine is a distinctively suitable solution for products which are sold by units. Seed counting machines provide various benefits such as elimination of costly overfilling, flexibility of machines regardless of size and shape of seeds, better process management, increased output, and less response time from order to delivery, enhanced field trial support, and improved quality control.
