Seed Drill

THIS IS ..Jethro Tull

BIGGEST SUCCESS

If Jethro Tull had never invented the seed drill or maybe never had existed, we would still be planting by hand unevenly and we would be slower in getting food to the population.

LASTING IMPACT

This invention helped make it easier to plant seeds at more exact row spaces. This machine also works to pull out weeds.

Jethro Tull

Jethro Tull was one of the most important inventors of the Industrial Revalution. He was born in 1674 in Basildon, UK. He was origanally going for a legal and political carrer, but illness prevented him from presuing his dream and, after being married, went to work on the farm with his dad. While he was in the fields, he noticed that the traditional way of planting seeds wasn't the most efficient way to do so. He told his workers to drill at very precise, low densities. His frustration grew by 1701, when the staff refused to cooaperate. This inspired him to make a machine that would do the work for him, which we all know as the Seed Drill.
