No-Till Drill Available For Rent
The practice of turning the soil before planting a new crop leads to soil erosion and farmland degradation. No-till planting reduces erosion and promotes soil health.

It’s perfect for seeding and reseeding fields and pastures. The District rents the drill for $15 per acre in Stanly County and $20 per acre for out of county use. There is a $50 minimum charge. Call the SWCD office at 704-986-3059 for more information.
