Grass Drill Rentals
The NRD has three grass drills available for rental to landowners for planting native grasses, grains and legumes. The drills are Great Plains No-Till drills with three different seed boxes capable of planting fluffy native grass seed, small seed like alfalfa & clovers, or coarser grain-type seed.
Rental rates are $10/acre plus a $25/day charge, with a minimum charge of $75. To inquire about drill rental, contact one of our local cooperators:

Our drill renters can help potential customers set the drill for the appropriate grass mixtures at the time of rental. If you have other questions, contact Operations & Maintenance Manager Bob Heimann at (402) 443-4675 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The NRD's grass drills were purchased with grant funds from the Nebraska Environmental Trust. The NRD thanks the Trust for their support.
