Row Seeding

Row Seeding

 

the planting of seeds in rows with interrow spaces of 10–25 cm. It is the most common method of planting grain crops. In row seeding, the seeds are sowed in furrows made by the boot of the planter and evenly covered with loose soil to a given depth. This ensures uniform sprouting and plant development and simultaneous maturation. Drawbacks of the row-seeding method are the excessive closeness of the plants to one another in the row and the relatively large interrow spaces.
