We use the Kasco 4' versa drill for most of our plantings. It does everything we want from mixes to brassicas and clover.

Into previous beans



Into sprayed thatch



The trench and seed

Final corn and bean plot...with brassicas in front. We went way to heavy on the corn to be a corn and bean plot. Trial and error.

You could easily use the 6' with that size tractor.

The 4' versa drill was in the $6,000.00. Not sure the price on the 6'.

No way am I saying that this is the best no-till around, but it is a great piece of equipment.
