Abstract

A four-row single cone planter that could be easily detached from a tractor was needed for off-station cereal leaf beetle (Oulema melanopus (L.)) research plots. The grain box and three disk openers were removed from a small seven-row drill equipped with a three-point hitch and a cone seeder with a four-row divider was installed. A fertilizer attachment was also installed. The length of plots can be easily changed from 2 to 15 m with a variable speed drive which is part of the commercial cone unit. The planter has been successfully used in planting plots of wheat (Triticum aestivum L. em. Thell.), barley (Hordeum vulgare L.), and oats (Avena sativa L.)
