The Truax No-Till Drill is the perfect planter for establishing native wildflowers and grasses into bare ground, or interseeded into sod or cover crops. Using the no-till system requires little prep other than weed control. You can plant your seed into untilled ground, making only one pass with the Truax. The three seperate seed boxes are gauged for different sized seeds and make it suitable to plant several seed mixes at a time. Even very small native wildflower seeds will be metered correctly with proper calibration. The Truax plants 4 ft wide (6 rows x 8″), making it ideal for planting between vine or orchard rows. It can also be used to plant larger tracts into conservation cover such as Pollinator Habitat. It has a three point hitch and requires at least a 60 HP tractor.
