Summary

Manual seeders for no-till used by smallholders in Brazil are briefly described in terms of operation, calibration and types. In regions of small farmers can play an important positive impact on labor savings and increasing fertilizer use efficiency compared to traditional methods of manual seeding. It is low cost, light and easy to
maintain and to operate although some training is required. Can be used also for intercropping seeding as well in hilly and stony soil conditions.
The paper describes various aspects of the tools.
