Historical Development of Seeder


    The first European seeder was made in Greece in 1636. In 1830, the Russians added a sowing device to the animal-powered multi-furrow plow to make a plough machine. Britain, the United States and other countries began mass production of animal grain drill after 1860. After the 20th century, there have been traction and hanging grain drill, and the use of pneumatic seed drill. In 1958, the first centrifugal seeder appeared in Norway, and various precision seeders were gradually developed after the 1950s.


    China introduced grain drill and cotton drill from abroad in the 1950s, and successfully developed a variety of models such as suspended grain drill, centrifugal drill, general rack drill and air suction drill in the 1960s, and successfully developed a grinding type seed feeder. By the 1970s, two series of sowing and ploughing machine and grain combined seeder had been formed and put into production. All kinds of drill and cave seeders for grain, row-crop, grass and vegetables have been popularized. At the same time, a variety of precision seeders have been successfully developed.


    Precision seeders will be more widely used for corn, sugar beets, cotton, beans and certain vegetable crops. The manufacturing accuracy of seed feeder parts will continue to improve, and more electronic monitoring devices can be used to send alarm signals in time in the event of abnormal conditions.


    In addition, the sowing method is also constantly improving, such as the use of peristaltic pump seed discharge rubber liquid seeding method, can avoid the impact of poor soil conditions on seed germination, but also can apply pesticides, fertilizers and so on.

    Today we explained the development history of seeders, and we will continue to update the development history of other agricultural machinery accessories in the future. Interested friends can follow it. See you next time!
