Drill Seeding Services
Seeding that uses mechanized sowing but doesn’t throw the seed is called drill seeding. Such a method was first used by the Babylonians circa 1400 BCE, and then improved upon in the 2nd century by the Chinese, who invented an iron drill with multiple tubes. This invention is credited with allowing China to feed its large population early on and become the catalyst for the idea of drill seeding. In the 19th century in Europe, a seed drill was invented and perfected until a design was come up with that was robust enough for heavy use, and that is what we utilize today.
What is Drill Seeding and How Does it Work?
Counterintuitive to the name, this method doesn’t require the use of an actual drill. What happens is complicated in explanation, but easy to understand in practice. Seeds make their way through a machine, down tubes, and into furrows. The advantage in this technique is that seeds are planted at uniform increments, a set depth, and the furrows are able to be closed over the seeds. Compared to the seeding methods that were used prior, this way allowed farmers to use less seed and harvest a greater yield.
