German term or phrase: Schnekenkorn
Dear colleagues,
The text I have deals with Landwirtschaft. The word Schnekenkorn isnt clear. Schneken is of course a spiral (or may be of a screw-type) but can someone suggest an appropriate word for Schnekenkorn? Look at the sentence below.
"Während des Spritzens kann mit dem 12 Volt betrie-benen SuperVario® Schneckenkorn gestreut werden."
Thanks in advance!
