No-Till 8 Row
Interseeding Planter
$20.00/ac - 175 acre maximum

In order to increase biodiversity, benefit soil health and increase nutrient cycling, cover crops are interseeded into growing corn.  Emphasis is placed on other crop types such as cool season legumes and broadleaves, and cool season grasses.  The planter can be rented for this purpose as well as for seeding corn.

We provide a tractor and operator, with the aerator for $17.00/acre plus fuel

Hayfield and pasture aeration increases productivity.  As the aerator's blades spiral into the ground, slicing through the rhizomes, it stimulates growth and breaks up soil compaction.  With the aerator's "No-Till" system, the ground behind remains smooth and not turned over like old conventional methods.  Aeration increases productivity by keeping soils loosened and opened up to allow fertilizer and rain to absorb, eliminating erosion and runoff. Also useful in CRP Maintenance.
