District Rents Out Seeder

May 19, 1991

The Carroll Soil Conservation District has purchased a new 10-inch Brillion Seeder, available for rent to farmers.

The new equipment, as well as an 8-inch Brillion Seeder, gives farmers an opportunity torent a seeder if their low volume rate doesn't justify buying one.

District members are encouraging the use of this piece of equipment, regarded as the best method for planting grasses and legumes in conventional prepared seedbeds.

The seeder has a drawbar hitch and can be towed behind a farm tractor or pickup.

Also available for rent is a 10-inch no-till Marliss Drill and a 7-inch no-till Tye Drill, which are used for first planting of alfalfa, spring oats, winter wheat, barley, small grains after corn and pasture renovation.

All pieces of equipment are available by calling the District Office between 8 a.m to 4:30 p.m. weekdays.

Information: 848-8200.
