Anyone have or use a no till drill on their plots? Just wondering.
Sounds like a tow behind if the manufacturer says you can use a UTV to plant with it. The weight is nice for doing the no-till planting....as long as the pulling machine can handle it. I would be willing to give it a try with our 35hp tractor.Where do you rent the one from in Fayette county? We’re in Allegheny is that a prob renting from them if we don’t live in that county? We have a 30 hp Kubota and can’t pull any of those bigger ones that 3 ft wld be nice. Is it a 3 pt hitch model or tow behind.
Planted this. It's a mix of the following. Seemed to do decent, depending on the quality of the ground and how well we burned down the existing vegetation. We fenced in a small area, and it looks pretty good. The drill worked great in all areas we tried to plant. Two pics below of areas with better soil.What did you plant w the genesis 3? I’d be interested in hearing how things grew. I’ve been looking at no tills also those genesis seem easy w the calibration I wondered how well they worked.
Fayette Co Conservation District but it is Fayette Co ONLY. Tow behind.Where do you rent the one from in Fayette county?

so I was worried about the same thing. I was told to have a faster travel speed. It will open your row up wider and allow for some of the smaller seed to land higher that the actual setting of the drill, but will still allow for your grains and such to be planted at the right depth. Haven’t tried it yet. It’s just what I was told.As the guy said that jumped out of a 20 story building nontypical, so far so good. I have the genesis 5 ft. and i'm early in my no-till career, but so far have no complaints. I've drilled buckwheat and rye with great results and I'm trying the small seeds this fall. Drilled some plot screen last weekend and going to use it for most of my brassica in 3 weeks. The only thing i'm worried about is the shallowest setting on the coulters is 1/2 in., which is a little deep for the small seeds. I'll look and see if I can do anything to get them ti 1/4 in.
