Furthermore, the development of sub-soilers to break up soil pans (highly compacted layers of soil interfering with water movement and deep crop root development) would not have been possible without the power capability of the modern tractor. Likewise, the ability to improve soil drainage (in excessively high moisture soils) through tractorized mole drainage systems would not have been possible with animal power alone.
As such, sowing and fertilizing may be combined in one field operation, as is common in cereal production where semi-continuous bands of seeds and fertilizers are planted close together at shallow depths in closely spaced rows (typically 175 mm apart). Of course, the fertilizer may also be applied separately (from the seed) in a corn drill style applicator.
