To maximize yield, three things must be done well: seed spacing, seed depth, and seed-to-soil contact without sidewall compaction. Great Plains Drills are designed and built using these principles. No matter what your farming practices, we have the right grain drill to fit your seeding needs. We are the seed placement specialists!
12' 3-Point Mounted Drill
The 1200 3-Point Drill is a 12' Mounted Min-Till Drill that, when combined with a CPH (Center-Pivot-Hitch), turns into a formidable no-till machine. The 1200 has all the same features as the 1500 and 2000 models and is available with tough 00-Series Openers.
12' No-Till Drill
A highly economical seeding solution, the versatile 1206NT Drill can simultaneously seed up to three different seeds at different rates.
With 06 Series Openers, the 1206NT builds off the success of its predecessor, the 1205NT. Featuring an optional native grass seed box, the drill’s full 12' working width, in conjunction with the precise depth control of the Great Plains no-till seed placement system, provides an unmatched level of both productivity and accuracy. The 1206’s fluted feed seed cup gently and precisely delivers a wide variety of seeds.
13' End Wheel Min-Till Drills
Providing big-drill performance in a smaller machine, the Great Plains 1300 End Wheel Drill is clearly the best built end wheel drill on the market. Heavy-duty openers feature hydraulically adjusted down pressure for consistent seed placement along the full width of the unit.
15' 3-Point Mounted Drill
With three opener options, our 15' 3-Point Drills can be matched to fit your specific needs for accurate seed placement in varying field conditions.
