Lister planter

A planter designed specifically to plant in a listed furrow. The deep furrow planting that was applicable to drier geographical regions used a lister (double-moldboard plow) to make the deep furrow needed. Early planters consisted of a planter mechanism attached to a walking lister and driven by two spiked wheels riding in the furrow. Later, a planter mechanism was combined with one- and two-row riding listers to produce what was referred to as a lister planter. See also the Lister discussion.
