The manual hill seeder designed and developed at Bataan Peninsula State University is a potential for direct seeding purposes. With its present performance, more has to be modified on its parts to further improve its efficiency, capacity, seeding rate, missed hills and drudgery of pulling the seeder. Ways on how to improve the seeder were discussed in the study and recommendations were presented in order to implement such improvements.
