Who invented the air seeder?
We invented and patented the first pneumatic broadacre air seeder in the world and pioneered its early development. Albert Fuss set about making a seeder mechanism with central distribution and mounted it on a Graham Holme Chisel Plough. In 1956 the family sowed wheat through the air seeder near Dalby in Queensland on 12" rows on a 20' wide machine. The Gyral "Number 1" Seeder. It still runs today and is at the Gyral Factory in Toowoomba! For over 45 years Gyral have manufactured air seeders. Albert Fuss patented his invention in 1956 and we have still have the number one air seeder here at the factory, and it still runs! North American cropping farmers, for example, probably have no idea that equipment purchased from the Great Plains Manufacturing Co of Kansas was patented from the drawing boards located at Gyral's Queensland Head Office or that Australian farmers from Western Australia to Queensland who have purchased Gason, Horwood Bagshaw, Shearer, Napier Grasslands or Simplicity are using equipment that is or has used Gyral's Air Seeding concepts.

How does the air seeder work?
An air seeder is an agricultural implement also called a planter or seeder and it is used to plant usually a seed crop in a large field. It was first patented in Australia in the 1950's. For many years seeders had a seed box running the width of the implement which allowed the seed to fall by gravity into the seed row. It was difficult to fill, clean out and transport. The air seeder has centrally located hoppers for seed and fertilizer which distributes them through an air stream to individual seed rows. It is convenient to fill, easy to clean out and move. Any crop that can be grown from seeds - which might vary is size from oilseeds to corn, can be sewn by an air seeder. The grain and fertilizer hoppers are usually carried on a large cart located behind or in front of the seeder. The air stream is created by a high capacity fan mounted on the cart which blows air through pipes located under the grain and fertilizer tank. Grain and Fertilizer are metered out from the hoppers by a meter wheel that is turning in a ratio set by the operator for the proper seed rate or seed density. The seeds enter the pipe in the airstream and follow the pipes which terminate in the seedbed. Openers pulled through the soil make the opening where the seeds are place. They are made of steel in the shape of points, discs or cultivator shovels. Once placed in the seed bed, the air is blown out the opening in the soil and the seed and fertilizer remain. The seeder can then pack the seeds tight to retain moisture near the seed and harrow the furrows so the field is not rough. Air seeders can seed at speeds up to possibly 10 MPH - planting many thousands of seeds a minute distributing them evenly and accurately. How does the air seeder do this? Using a principle in physics - a gas (air) will distribute itself evenly amongst the divisions available to it. Just like they know where to go, the seed and fertilizer granuals follow the air through divisions of the piping evenly and accurately. The width of the air seeder can expand for working width and to fold together for transport and have been built to widths of 85 ft - maybe more. Air seeders are expensive to purchase and operate. They require expensive tractors to pull them and they need a steady supply of seed, fertilizer and have wearing parts such as soil openers. The operator must be competent and careful because a mistake in setting the seed placement, seeding rate or in operating the machinery can also be expensive. A mistake or delay in seeding can cost lower grades or a growing season for the crop.

How does the seeder work on FarmVille?
It works the same way as planting seeds yourself, except the seeder plants four plots at once, your farmer stays still while using the Seeder (and the tractor and harvester), requires plenty of fuel, and fuel can only be purchased using FV Cash (not coins). However, some Christmas gifts include 1 or 10 fuel refills. Keep in mind, if you use the Tractor, you can earn ribbons. You can't earn points towards ribbons with the Seeder or Harvester.
