Pennock's Seed and Grain Planter
From American Agriculturist, 1846
The drills can be thrown in or out of gear separately, so as
to plant a field of any shape without seeding any part
twice. They are so arranged as to operate equally well on
all kinds of land—hilly and rough, as well as level and
smooth. A man, with two horses, can put in from 10 to 12
acres with wheat in a day, and, with one horse, he can plant
20 acres with corn per day.
