Seed drills are an important piece of farm equipment that can result in producers increasing yields - due to more precise planting. While not a new invention by any means, seed drills were used in ancient China and by the Sumerians. Seed drills simply drop the seed into the ground via a tube, and gently covers the seed with soil. Seed drills can either used gravity to sow the seeds or used pneumatic pressure to push the seed into the ground. When shopping for a used seed drill, look for signs of obvious wear and tear, bent tubes, and corrosion or working parts.
