Product Description

Native Grass

Min-Till Native Grass Drills from Great Plains are the perfect fit for farmers and contractors who need to seed native grass over a large number of acres.

Offered in 12' or 15' working widths, these 3-point drills feature the Series II Picker-Wheel Meter and native grass agitators. The 1 bu./ft. native grass box effectively meters everything from fluffy native grass mixes to denser seeds, such as brome. All models also come standard with a 2 bu./ft. fluted feed seed box to meter standard seed, from alfalfa to oats. If needed, a third small seeds box can be added to accurately meter even the smallest seeds.

The 00 Series openers place all three different seeds at different depths at the same time, maximizing emergence and ensuring accurate seeding rates. These units can be turned into no-till drills by adding a Center Pivot Hitch.

Great Plains also offers 24' and 30' min-till folding native grass models.

Product Features

Series II Native Grass Drive

This system provides higher seeding rates and more aggressive native grass feeding than other boxes. It meters even the fluffiest native grass seed by continually moving the seed with the agitator (above) and by pulling it down out of the seed box and into the native grass seed tube with the aggressive picker wheel (right).

NYLATRON(R) SLIDE BLOCKS

Modern materials reduce or eliminate wear.

Simple Ground-Driven Seed-Rate Drive

The adjustable ground-drive gauge wheel features 4" of travel for following the contours of uneven field conditions.

Press Wheel Options

Choices include 3"x13" double rib* press wheels, 3"x13" center rib press wheels, or 2"x13" smooth press wheels that firm the soil directly over the seed.

No-Till Conversion

Add a Center Pivot Hitch to turn a 3PNG12 or a 3PNG15 into a no-till drill (Note: drill must be equipped with single gauge wheels).

Native Grass Opener

Features 13.5" blades with ¼" offset to aid in penetration. Has the ability to plant three different seed types at three depths and three rates – at the same time. Extra-large seed tube for native grass allows the seed to flow to the trench without bridging.

Dual or 2 Single Gauge Wheels

Choose between single or dual gauge wheels. Single gauge wheels can be ordered with either implement tires or heavy-duty skid steer tires.
