I have never seen a dual hopper setup, thanks for sharing!

I haven't either. I noticed a different seed in each compartment, perhaps someone with more experience will explain the operation. Thanks, Tom.

You plant corn and beans at the same time so you can raise succotash.

Don't the peas/beans also climb the corn stalks so you don't need trelisses?

That was the thinking, plus the legume sets nitrogen in the soil for the corn to feed on. You can get two different drivers for the hoppers. One drops a seed from each can at the same time and the other alternates between one and the other.

The Duplex hopper was another design that had two seed hoppers side by side. That one could plant big stuff, like peanuts.
