Details of equipment and materials needed to run a rice seedling distribution center

1.Rice seeder equipment with sowing rail

1.1 Rice Seeder

To sow sprouted seeds and cover medias; the process requires human labor.

it is important that a right amount of seeds are scattered in a tray to obtain robust seedlings. Uniformity in seed sowing can be achieved with the use of rice seeder. The equipment can also be used to dispense cover medias.

medias may contain unwanted materials such as stones and weeds. These materials can cause damage to rice transplanters during transplanting.
