Abstract

A major drawback to the more widespread use of Buffel grass, Birdwood grass and Kapok bush for reseeding our eaten-out and denuded pastoral areas has been the absence of a seed-box capable of handling this type of seed. Officers of the Northwest Branch of the Department of Agriculture have now designed, built and tested a simple yet effective seed-box capable of handling either class of seed, or a combination of the three, with equal facility. It makes possible the cultivation and reseeding in the one operation, with provision for regulating the seeding rate to practically any desired level.
