Grass Drill Available
The Warren County Conservation Board has available for rent a Truax grass drill set up to plant native grasses and forbs. The drill has hoppers for fine seeds, fluffy seeds and cover crops such as rye or oats. Cost is $75 for two days. Reservation arrangements can be made with WCCB Ranger/Biologist Mark Wilson.
The Warren County Conservation Board has tree planter and planting bars available to loan to private landowners. The planter mounts on a tractor’s three point hitch and allows a large number of trees to be planted efficiently. The planter is good if you have over five hundred trees to plant in an area with a prepared seed bed. A $50 deposit is required. Planting bars work well in sod or with smaller volumes of trees. Reservation arrangements can be made with WCCB Ranger/Biologist Mark Wilson.
Wildlife Food Plots
The WCCB often has corn and sorghum seed available for planting in wildlife food plots. If you want to plant a food plot, call the WCCB at (515) 961-6169 to check on seed availability.
