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. Stanly SWCD’s Truax 88 No-Till-Drill is designed with three seed boxes that allow for planting regular grass seed, fluffy seeds and clovers. 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.
