    Description

    Furrow-seeding techniques seem to offer the best means of providing desired conditions at reasonable cost (Croker 1967). A tractor-drawn furrow-seeder prepares a mineral seedbed, sows and covers the seed, and can be maneuvered so as to leave some existing vegetation between furrows for shade. Since no commercial equipment was suitable for use under typical northeastern brushland conditions, we adapted existing equipment to suit our needs. From a fireline plow and a beet planter, we devised a furrow-seeder.
