No-Till Drill Rental Program

The Taylor County LCD has a 10-foot Great Plains No-Till Drill available for rent to encourage interseeding and establishment of pastures, use of cover crops and no-tilling crops to aid in soil conservation.

The Great Plains Drill is a heavy drill that requires a 70hp tractor. It has two seed boxes: one for legumes and small grass seeds, and one for larger grass seeds up to peas.

Rental fees include a $60 per farm annual fee plus $6 per acre. Landowners are typically allowed 2 working days at a time to use the drill, which the LCD will enforce during busy times.
