Paragraph t563.p9 (line(s) 46-54) Click line no. for paragraph-aligned layout of transliteration and translation.
Make eight furrows per nindan (6 m) of width; the barley will lodge in more closely spaced furrows. When you have to work the field with the seeder-plough, keep your eye on your man who drops the seed. The grain should fall two fingers deep. You should put one giĝ of seed per nindan (approx. 3 ml per m). If the barley seed is not being inserted in the hollow of the furrow, change the wedge of your plough share. If the bindings become loose, tighten them.
