Liquid fertilizer?  BS!  Back box is for small seeds, like alfalfa.  Front box for large seeds, like wheat.

What is the spacing between the rows?  Too wide for cereal grains, may be soy or corn?  Possibly early no till for seeding in established pasture.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's just a fertilizer applicator.  From the view in the pics, the underneath doesn't look right for dispensing seeds.

Quite possibly convertible between being specialized for seed and fertilizer.

This! Invaluable for planting small seeds such as rye, wheat, oats, and such.

That's an old seeder,  we have a few in the row of junked farm equipment at the back 40  , behind the row of liberals we've been burying.

Row width has shrunk dramatically over the last 70 or so years. I'm thinking this planter is old enough that it was made for the older plants that needed more room.

More specifically a 'drill' (which is a type of a seeder).  Early model - John Deere among other manufactures continue to make them ....

Older seeder.

Not worth using any more with large row spacing.

Given the wide spacing, I'd guess that it was used for corn.

With that row width, it would only be useful for corn or maybe sunflowers.  Your going to want something with a lot closer spacing for most foodplots.

4 row Tull drill, but if you're still using it you're just living in the past.

Could probably use it for carrots (if it can properly dispense that small a seed) or pole beans.

I'm not a hardcore farmer but I think the hoses are for the lighter seed to fall through in a controlled manner? Like to keep them from blowing away from the line of the row? I may be wrong though.

No till, grass seed in an existing pasture.  Having nice, neat even rows isn't really a concern, just turn around and go over back, through around, what you've already sown.  I'd rather just use a broadcaster seeder on a good snow for pasture, but it would be nice for times when you don't want to tear up the ground to put out some sunflower, add some clover, timothy, orchard grass, korean, bluestem, sorghum, millett, whatever...
