Direct Seeding

We have been involved with Direct Seeding since 1976.  Being at the forefront of implementing this farming technique gave us the opportunity to compare fields side by side which had been direct seeded, and those which had not.  Over the years the difference has become more dramatic.  Direct seeding improves the fertility of the soil, provides better habitat for wildlife and keeps the soil where it belongs, thus, improving water quality.  This planting method incorporates needed fertilizers during the planting process reducing the number of passes equipment has to make over the fields.  This in turn reduces soil compaction, increasing the soils ability to hold moisture.  Fields that have been no tilled also demonstrate an increase in the diversity and density of living organisms inhabiting the soil.
