Learn these different techniques of sowing
01 Sep, 2020
The process of growing plants is not at all an easy process and not everyone's cup of tea. All small steps require great efforts and precision in order to get a full-grown green and nice plant. And one the major and most important step of the whole process is sowing. Having proper knowledge of it and different techniques will help you in having a nice yield.
Maybe most of the people are well aware of what it is. But if you are not then don't worry because it is just a term given to the process of placing the seed in the soil so that it can grow properly. A plant's growth depends on many aspects but the correct position of seed is of great significance.
There are different techniques of doing this work and selection of the perfect one according to your crops and field will help you a lot. So, let's just dig in about them.
The easiest and simple method of sowing seeds. In this, you just have to spread seeds randomly just like a random throw and you can do that either manually or mechanically. This method is cheap but it doesn't ensure proper spacing, depth and nice coverage of soil over seeds.
This one is a little expensive but it leads to the proper placing of seeds. Basically in this technique, we place the seeds in holes at a uniform distance and depth then cover them with soil. The process is time-consuming but you can use the dibbler (a kind of instrument that creates holes)for placement of seeds.
We have to sow the seed in a hole in a row and then we close the hole with soil. For creating holes we can use seed drill and also seed cum fertiliser drill. Just like dibbling the output of this technique is also great but it's both expensive and time-consuming.
As the name of the method suggests that there is some transplantation involved here. Basically, we transplant a seedling to the field from nursery. We can use transplanter to shift the seedlings.
This one is the most systematic way of sowing. We sow seeds in two perpendicular rows which maintains the uniform distance between plants and it can be achieved with the help of machine known as check row planter.
In this process, we placed the seed in random order but it has to be done behind the plough. One person has to handle the plough and the other has to place the seed. This process is widely used in villages but this requires lots of efforts which makes it quite hectic.
In this method, you just have to spread the seeds at constant intervals because of which the space between plants is constant throughout the field.
The journey from seed to plant is too much beautiful and your selection about everything makes it more interesting.
