This paper presents the results of research on the quality of seeding Sida hermaphrodita Rusby (Virginia fanpetals) seeds with the S071 KRUK precision seeder in field conditions. It was observed that the best quality of sowing for the examined classes of distances in a row was obtained at the sowing disk peripheral speed of 0.23 m s-1 and the working speed of 0.8 m s-1. In subsequent tests significant impact of the disk peripheral speed on percentages of single, duplicate and skipped plants was observed. Thus, it can be concluded that the peripheral speed of the sowing disk of the examined seeder impacts the precision of seed distribution in a row.
