Do you mean for small seeds or for corn, beans, and sorghum?What is the next best to use/do, if a person can’t afford a no-till?
Doing a search for that, I'm not sure what I am looking for. Can you give an example of a min-till drill? Or is it just an old drill that you use with minimal tillage?MINIMAL TILL DRILL!!!!!! It cuts 1/2” deep, sometimes a little more shallow. Not gonna do soybeans with it for example but can do about any food plot stuff. Downside: they are old. Probably needs basic mechanical work (I’m talking in the hundreds of dollars).
Upside: cost about nothing. Very simple. Easy to fix or rebuild or update. Can do anything like: brassicas, clover, switchgrass, Dbltree mix (sure, not ideal depth for oats, peas, etc but work just fine). Look at auctions. Or sitting around. No farmer uses them hardly. I had an “extra” - I put maybe $500 into it. Gave it to a buddy last year for free. They are everywhere & just need to dig to find one. That’s best alternative if a guy didn’t wanna buy or rent a drill.
Here’s example. 2 seed boxes. Deere used to make a Van Brunt way back in the day. There’s a hundred different models & brands that work same way…. 2 tires, 2 seed boxes & a hydraulic cylinder to raise & lower. They are very simple…. Lemme know if these examples make sense.Doing a search for that, I'm not sure what I am looking for. Can you give an example of a min-till drill?
