Apparatus for punch planting of seeds comprising a
slotted-rimmed wheel rotatably mounted on a frame
with an axis of rotation passing through the center of a
gear fixed to the frame. The wheel is equipped with a
plurality of drive gears which communicate with and
rotate around the fixed gear. On each drive gear is
pivotally mounted a magnetic-tipped punch. The rotation
of the wheel causes the punches to move in and out
of the slots in the wheel. The action of the punch produces
a small hole in the soil and embeds a coated seed
