Planting Seed and Fertiliser

catrial2.jpg

One operator rocks the planter backwards and forwards while pushing it into the soil using the foot.

Seed is dropped down one tube and a metered amount of fertiliser down the other by a second operator.

After the planter is lifted out a foot is placed over the hole to ensure soil covers the seed.

A string is used to ensure equal spacing of seed rows.

Crop Emergence

The crop emerges in a weed free seed bed and grows steadily to maturity.

The surface mulch gives good rainfall infiltration without erosion.
