Sometimes called a pasture renovator, the no-ttll planter is a seed drill with a special function. It is supplied with a disc and a shoe which allow it to slice the turf and plant a seed without first plowing and preparing a seedbed. Animals can continue to graze while new plantings of elover or grass get started. One farmer reports, "I get a lot of nitrogen this way and I get it where it counts." According to Dick Margulis, who writes advice for novice fanners in Countryside, "Good natural nitrogen in the plant means good natural protein for the cow. A fanner ought not to buy his nitrogen or his protein. His total farm cycle ought to handle the greatest share of this problem." Also, planting in existing sod is a very good practice to control erosion.

The Tye Pasture Pleaser

The Tye Pasture Pleaser is a compact three-

point-hitch-mounted, no-till planting unit covering 80 inches, with disc units spaced 10 inches apart. It is a conveniently sized tool for seeding legumes, grass, or small grains in sod, permanent, or improved pasture. Drive is by a single, spring-loaded, front-running coulter. Each double-disc unit is preceded by a spring-loaded coulter blade. Each blade, as well as each disc unit and press-wheel, is individually hinged and spring loaded for work on uneven ground. The larger hopper is fitted with internally fluted seeder units for small grains as well as soybeans. The small hopper or grass box is fitted with externally fluted seeder units for dispensing grasses and legumes. Brackets are provided for adding suitcase-type weights to assist penetration of the coulters in bard ground.
