No-Till Drill Seeder ($40/day fee): The no-till drill seeder is an excellent cultivation and conservation tool. It can plant seeds at a relatively even distribution throughout a field without much soil disturbance. A cultivator furrows the soil enough to place seed, and a set of wheels follows to close the furrow. No-till seeding can reduce the loss of seed to predation and germination failure, increasing yields. It also reduces erosion and maintains soil structure essential for maximizing water holding capacity. Our no-till drill seeder requires a 40 to 50hp tractor to pull, and must be transported overland behind a truck utilizing a pin hitch. Contact JSWCD for more information on transportation and use of the no-till drill seeder.

Dew Drop Drill User Manual:

The Dew Drop Drill seeder is an excellent cultivation and conservation tool. The drill plants seeds across a 3 foot width at random utilizing drop chutes. This results in a no rows natural seed placement. No-till seeding can reduce the loss of seed to predation and germination failure, increasing yields. Another benefit of the Dew Drop Drill is it reduces erosion and maintains  soil structure essential for maximizing water holding capacity. The drill is operated by a deep cycle 12v battery mounted in the rear of the drill. Attached is a 15ft remote control switch that engages/disengages the seed boxes, as well as lift and lower the disks. This drill does NOT require the use of hydraulics. The drill can be pulled by any small tractor, UTV, or ATV (recommend 400cc or larger) and utilizes a 1 and 7/8ths inch ball hitch. JSWCD provides a utility trailer to transport the drill. OPTIONAL: A 48" tow behind cultipacker is also a great tool to utilize in conjuction with the cultipacker.

Soil Auger (Free to use): Before you spend money on expensive fertilizers, find out what your soil needs. Our soil auger will allow you to collect soil samples from your field or pasture that you can send to an analytical lab for testing. The soil auger is a hand held device that bores a small sample of soil approximately 8 to 12” deep. Contact JSWCD for information on collecting soil samples and a list of analytical labs that do soil testing.

Soil Moisture Step Probe (Free to use): Seeing is believing, and until you actually get down and dirty under the soil, it is almost impossible to determine how the soil is reacting to your irrigation management.  If you wait until the plants show signs of too little water (or too much), it may be too late.  A soil step probe allows the manager to easily determine what is going on beneath the surface without disturbing the crop.  Use in conjunction with the Soil Moisture by Feel guide, found here.

Common questions the Soil Moisture Step Probe can help answer:

1.)    When should I start irrigating?

2.)    When should I stop irrigating?

3.)    How thick is my grass/pasture thatch layer?
