Seed Drill

Seed drill

  • A seed drill is a system that seeds crops by putting them in the soil and burying them to a certain depth
  • The seed drill sows the seeds at the required seeding rate and depth to ensure the seeds are shielded by the soil. This saves them from being eaten by birds and livestock or dried up because of sun exposure.

Benefits

  • A field planted with a seed drill is much more orderly, commonly in rows, which helps the hoe to weave throughout the growing season.
  • By using seed trill the farmer can plant many rows of seeds at the same time.
  • You can drive a seed drill through the field using bullocks or a tractor. Seeds sown using a seed drill are uniformly dispersed and put in the soil at the appropriate depth.

Seed Drill Machine:

Drilling Machines is the term used for the mechanized sowing of an agricultural crop. A seed drill is a seeding system that precisely sows the seed at the correct depth and distance in the soil. A saeed (also hoe drill; seeder) is a device used in agriculture that sows seeds for crops by positioning them in the soil and burying them to a specific depth. … The machine sows the seeds at the proper seeding rate and depth, ensuring that the seeds are covered by soil.

Description:

In older methods of planting, a field is initially prepared with a plow to a series of linear cuts known as furrows. The field is then seeded by throwing the seeds over the field, a method known as manual broadcasting. The seeds may not be sown to the right depth nor the proper distance from one another. Seeds that land in the furrows have better protection from the elements, and natural erosion or manual raking will cover them while leaving some exposed. The result is a field planted roughly in rows, but having a large number of plants outside the furrow lanes.

There are several downsides to this approach. The most obvious is that seeds that land outside the furrows will not have the growth shown by the plants sown in the furrow since they are too shallow on the soil. Because of this, they are lost to the elements. Many of the seeds remain on the surface where they are vulnerable to being eaten by birds or carried away on the wind. Surface seeds commonly never germinate at all or germinate prematurely, only to be killed by frost.

Since the furrows represent only a portion of the field’s area, and broadcasting distributes seeds fairly evenly, this results in considerable wastage of seeds. Less obvious are the effects of overseeding; all crops grow best at a certain density, which varies depending on the soil and weather conditions. Additional seeding above this will actually reduce crop yields, in spite of more plants being sown, as there will be competition among the plants for the minerals, water, and the soil available. Another reason is that the mineral resources of the soil will also deplete at a much faster rate, thereby directly affecting the growth of the plants.
