The seeding machine operation procedure consists of preparing the place where the seed should be placed, in placing the grain at a certain level below the soil surface in a certain order of arrangement and, finally, in the embedding – this work in large part falls on the share of the colter. The presented operation procedure of the seeder unit provides two main phases: reproduction of the maximum possible uniform feed of seed and its transporting to the colter; preparation of the groove, the required agrotechnical dimensions and distribution of seed material within it, followed by embedding them with soil. At the first phase of the seeding procedure, the issues of the outflow of seed material and its travel through the “seed tube - colter” system are relevant, and for the second phase, it is necessary to investigate the deformations of the soil layer reproduced by the colters, which is extremely necessary to select conditions that ensure uniform distribution of seed along the length and width of the row and at the desired depth. The article analyzes the investigation results by various authors devoted to the study of the stability of the depth of the opener stroke, its balance, and on their basis, analytical dependences are obtained.
