Uneven grow in cilantro

What's happenig?
I plant cilantro in rows 6 inches apart and 4 inches between plants (2 seed per hole 3/4 inch deep [I use a jig]) and get almost 100% germination.
About 70% are very healthy, strong plants (about 7 inches tall)
What I cannot understand in why if I have a good plant in one spot, the next plant is stunned (2 inches tall)
The fertilizer I use and the compost are very well mixed into the soil. Could be some kind on virus?... Please HELP

RE: Uneven grow in cilantro

Plant it in clumps with seeds close together. Also, plant a bunch every 2 weeks. Seeds are probably weaker in some and stronger in others. I see this with peppers and tomato plants. Some grow to 3 foot tall while others remain stunted. Its the law of averages, and how good your seeds are.
