Planter

A farm implement designed to plant crop seed. There are several distinctly different avenues available for planting the many different sizes and shapes of seeds, but each of them consists of the same two basic operations. The first places the seeds in the desired location. The second properly covers them so that they are both protected from birds and kept moist enough to germinate. For the latter, there is a minimum depth of covering necessary. Depending on the crop and soil, this minimum depth varies but is on the order of an inch. There is also some maximum depth that can be used; otherwise, the fledgling plant will never be able to get to the surface.
