This object is a turnip seeder, having been brought into use some time around 1920 – 1930. It can do three things at once making it easier and faster than doing it by hand. It consists of a wheel that creates a trench on the front and a metal container with holes that drops out the seeds when pushed, followed by a flat piece of wood that covers the seeds with soil.
