If you are only put a a hand full of seed in the hopper they do tend to pile up and not drop into the cells of the planter plates. I usually try to put enough seed to fill the bottom of the hopper a couple of inches thick. The extra seed keeps the seeds feeding into the plates and not just piling up on the sides of the hopper. I plant a field corn and sweet corn with a JD 494A planter, only time it skips is when the seed hopper is not full enough to cover the floor.

I would buy extra seed to get enough so the planter work properly also if it is a two row planter just fill one hopper and make more passes. The extra will keep for a few years if stored in a cool dry place. You will have two benefits from doning so 1) you will have a good stand and 2) you'll be ahead of the price increase from year to year.
