Emery's Corn Planter
From Illustrated Annual Register of Rural Affairs, 1872
One of the best corn-planters drawn by a
horse is the one represented by fig. 120,
and known as Emery's. Seeds which
fall by their own weight are dropped
by a wood cylinder, having adjustable cups to measure or count the
seeds, while light seeds, as beets,
carrots, broom-corn, parsneps, &c.,
are forced out with regularity by a
revolving brush. Although in use
many years, it is still unknown to
many good farmers.
