To sow in drills.
A small trickling stream; a rill.
A light furrow or channel made to put seed into sowing.
A row of seed sown in a furrow.
A piece of equipment for seeding that is pulled behind a tractor. The drill is used to plant wheat and other small seed crops. It makes a long groove in the soil, drops the seeds into it and then covers and firms the soil above the seed.
A machine towed by a tractor that plants seeds in rows a fixed distance apart. An alternative to broadcasting where seed is thrown into the air, either by hand or machine, and lands in a random pattern across the field. See Tull, Jethro.

But can also refer to the range of machines and implements used for sowing seed at the correct depth. Also, therefore, â€˜drillingâ€™, as the process of seed sowing.
Shallow furrow in garden soil made with a cane or the corner of the rake and into which seeds are sown.
An implement used to place an exact amount of seed at a desired depth. This can be from 3kg/ha for canola to 250kg/ha for wheat.

In agriculture and gardening, a drill is a shallow furrow in which seeds or bulbs are placed during seeding. A drill is commonly created by dragging a hoe through the soil in a straight line, leaving a furrow of a centimeter or two for smaller seeds, or a deeper trench of several centimeters for flower bulbs and seed potatoes. It makes seeding faster than by individually burying seeds, and also facilitates the creation of straight rows.
