This implement is adapted for covering cane and other seed, after the furrows have been opened by a plow and the seed deposited. It covers in the seed, forms the ridge and leaves the soil in a light pulverized condition. With it, more work can be done in a given time, and in a better manner, than with two plows. It is the invention of John Allison, of St. Martins-ville, La.
