A Sowing Machine (or Sower, Seeder) is a piece of equipment whose purpose is to sow crops. Each model of sowing machine can only sow certain types of crops. Sowing machines need to be filled with seeds, and then dragged across a suitably-prepared field by a tractor. Certain sowing machines can prepare the field themselves as they work.

There are 12 types of Sowing Machines in the base game. They differ from one another in a variety of ways, including the types of Crops they can sow, their working width, and whether or not they can cultivate while sowing. The Big Bud DLC adds 1 non-cultivating sower, 2 cultivating sowers, and 2 sower expansion tanks. The Kuhn DLC adds 2 non-cultivating sowers, 1 cultivating sower, and 1 sower expansion tank.
