Seed depth placement drill sown rice

Seed depth placement is critical to drill sown rice

According to growers who drill sow, the dry spring has resulted in hardening of well-prepared seed beds. This has prevented drill seeders, and particularly single disc machines, from working effectively. As a consequence, growers have had to work the ground prior to sowing or have pre- watered to enable sowing to take place.
