The Lake County Conservation District, in partnership with the Montana DNRC CARDD and the Mission Valley Pheasants Forever, has a Great Plains No-Till Seed Drill to rent to the community. The Great Plains No-Till Seed Drill is available for rental at the Lake County Weed District this fall 2020. The No-Till Seed Drill is 7′ wide and can seed 3 acres per hour on average. It has both a Large Seed Box and a Small Seed Box to accommodate a wide variety of seed species. The No-Till Seed Drill is ideal for cover crops, forage/pasture plantings, wildlife and pollinator plantings, and inter-seeding. Additionally, Lake County Conservation District can assist with creating customized seed mixes and recommendations. Below are links to helpful documents and videos!

No-Till Seed Drill Rental Cost: $200 for first 36 hours + $100 for each additional day OR $10 per/ acre, whichever is greater. The No-Till Seed Drill can be rented for a maximum of four consecutive days.

Security Deposit: $1000 fully refundable deposit
