Model, scale 1:4, of Jethro Tull's seed drill, c. 1701. Tull's seed drill of circa 1701 represented a major step towards the mechanisation of crop cultivation. The machine would be drawn by a horse and sowed three regularly spaced rows of wheat grains. This regular spacing, as opposed to broadcast sowing of seeds, made possible the introduction, also by Tull, of a horse-drawn hoe to remove weeds growing amongst the crop.

This equipment can be used to sow seeds with relative ease, compared to hand sowing. The seeds fall at equal intervals which can be modifying by changing the number of holes in the rotor part. The size of the holes can also be changed for allowing different sizes of seeds. This product was designed for minimum number of parts.
