When determining the etymological origin of the word sowing we have to specify that it is found in Latin. More exactly it comes from the verb I will seminate, which can be translated as "put seeds."
Sowing is the sowing action and effect (throw and spread seeds on earth that is prepared for that purpose, or do something that will bear fruit). The term sowing is also used to refer to the weather in which it is sown and at land sown.
For example: “My grandfather who lives in the countryside is very busy: it is planting time”, "The planting was spoiled by heavy snowfall", “Tomorrow we will start with planting”, “Everyone reaps what he sows: those who do evil receive bad things”.
In the field of agricultural tasks, planting can be defined as the process that consists of planting seeds so that they germinate and develop plants . Planting will be effective if certain conditions are met: the seeds must be healthy, the climate must be suitable for cultivation, etc.
Specifically, we can establish that two clearly defined types of planting are established. On the one hand, there is what is known as open field planting. And it is the one defined by the fact that the land is prepared and then left open as its own name indicates.
On the other hand, there is the so-called sowing by hand which is the one that consists of throwing seeds in the ground. It is important that this launch be done in a homogeneous way. Within this type of planting there are several modalities, such as those carried out on flat land, on wide beds or in furrows that have an important level of elevation.
It is also important to emphasize that each crop requires that a series of considerations be taken into account in order to achieve the greatest number of fruits and also their optimal conditions. Among the tricks that have been used by many people, professionals or not in agriculture, is the lunar calendar.
This is a tool that takes into account the phases of the Moon to know when the sowing of one crop or another should be carried out. Thus, for example, it is considered that during the waning moon it is the best phase for growing potatoes.
Corn, soy, wheat and oats are some of the crops that are sown. Planting characteristics vary according to the type of seed. Some require more space to grow, others need more depth and in some cases you have to use specially treated land.
In a symbolic sense, planting is linked to the actions of the present that have future consequences . The sowing action refers to a stage where a certain development develops conduct which, sooner or later, will yield a result. Popular knowledge indicates that if someone "sowing" Positive things, will be rewarded. On the contrary, if the "sowing" It is negative, its effects will be harmful.
