The Soil and Water Conservation District can assist you in the seeding of conservation areas. For smaller areas of 5 acres or less we can custom seed your site with our 4 foot no-till seeder (seen above). Rates are based on a base fee and tach hours used to seed the site.
For larger projects we like to use our 20ft broadcast air seeder (see below).
We have done projects from 1/2 to 100 acres.
Our Air Broadcast Seeder is used for Pollinators, Cover Crops, and Native Prairie Grasses. Contact the SWCD for more information.
