The grower raises winter cover crops, which are then mechanically cut or
chemically killed to achieve a thick mulch. Spring vegetable crops
are then seeded into the no-till mulch. Thus, the no-till planter must be able
to "cut" through the mulch similar to a hand-pushed seed drill, or
to "punch" through the mulch similar to an old hand poking corn planter.
* Do any plans exist from Cooperative Extension or American Society
of Agricultural Engineers to build a small-scale no-till drill?
* Do any companies manufacture small-scale no-till drills, or
supply appropriate equipment parts?
