Everything You Need to Know About No-till Farming
No sales pitches. This DVD is aimed at nurturing your understanding of the seed-installation process, and we have tried in the utmost to be truthful and objective, and to deliver highly useful insights and tips. We sincerely want no-tillers to succeed, whether or not they buy any hardware from Exapta.
Detailed narrative and visuals to guide you through everything from off-season overhauls of your planter & drill, to exact step-by-step adjustments in the field. Actual footage of Matt Hagny excavating seeds in furrows (both planters and drills); discussion of what good seed placement looks like, and why. Troubleshooting. Maintenance tips. Aftermarket upgrades. Seedling growth. Fertilizer placement. Agronomy. How uniform timing of emergence overshadows uniform spacing for yield influence. For highly effective no-till seeding, this video has it covered.
120 minutes of narrated video, diagrams, and data covering nearly every aspect of no-till seeding; includes 10-step printed guide for in-field reference. Free shipping within the US and Canada
While we cover no-till seeding in the broadest possible terms, specific recommendations given will apply primarily to the JD/Kinze/White planter design, and to the Deere 50/60/90-series single-disc gauge-wheel drills. Case SDX & Case Precision 500 / NH 2080 gauge-wheel drills are also discussed. (Once you see the explanation of the discrete actions required for proper no-till seed placement, you’ll understand why we focus on these particular models as being the top choices for no-till seeding in North America. Even if you do not yet own these seeder models, you will benefit from understanding no-till seeding better as explained in this comprehensive DVD.)
For those who missed out on the school, you can purchase the full 3-hour video while supplies last.

“We always get a lot out of your Seeding Schools. We feel comfortable no-tilling now.”
“Well worthwhile. Very informational. One of the better things I’ve done—I could actually see what I was supposed to be doing, rather than just hearing someone talk about it. The planter demonstration was impressive as to the differences in what we’re doing with the operation of each component. Time well-spent.”
“The Seeding School was really worthwhile. The guys need to be there—they should be going every year.”
“The Seeding School is very enlightening”
