What notill drill would be a good choice?

I am kicking around the idea of changing notill drills. We have a John Deere 1590 20 foot. I want to go to 30 foot but don't really want to go to an air seeder.

What your ground like? Is it rocky or pretty tame? Hilly or flat?

I had a wheat scout say that a John Deere drill does the best job - 750, 1590, or 1990 CCS

It’s fine in hard ground but one thing I don’t love is you have to adjust down pressure on every row. From 90-450 lbs if memory serves me co...

I also hear awesome things about Crustbusters in No-till conditions.

Verified FBN Member (NE)
