Mechanization is generally difficult for small farmers since it is either not accessible due to cost or it does not adapt to their necessities. Much effort has gone into the design and construction of equipment for small surfaces, which is to be welcomed only if it provides a functional and economic solution to the specific problem of the farmer. Under that approach, the objective of this study was to design, build and evaluate a low-cost horse drawn seeder, eventually human, using materials that are easy to acquire.
