Revitalize existing pastures and hay fields
Improve forage stands by adding legumes to pure grass stands and to strengthen weak grass stands
Establish new hay fields, deer food plots or wildlife habitats
Completely reseed forage stands that have become unproductive
Benefits of Using No-Till Pasture Seeding vs. Other Methods
A no-till drill (also called a seed drill, grain drill, zero-till opener or no-till planter) makes a narrow slit across the ground, places seed at a defined depth/rate and closes the ground to maximize seed contact with the soil. Seed contact provides faster germination, stronger plant growth and ensures greater assurance of success compared to over seeding, dragging or frost heave methods.
No-Till Rental Price
$10/acre. $150 minimum
Reservations are required. Contact us to reserve the seed drill or to answer any questions.
Increase Forage Quality and Hay Yield
No-till planting puts seeds directly into the ground at a preset depth without destroying existing soil structure or network of pasture root system. Because plowing or disking is eliminated, no-till drilling:
Saves operator’s time, fuel and equipment
Builds a stronger soil structure
Adds to the organic matter
Feeds beneficial microorganisms
Reduces soil loss from erosion
Increases water infiltration
