It will be available for rent with fees starting at a Flat Fee of $160.00 for 1 to 5 acres then $12.00 per acre after that plus tax. The SWCD Staff will deliver and set up the drill and also pick up when seeding is completed. The amount of usage time will be determined per project.
The Waseca SWCD has a tree planter available for rent at $50.00 a day, tax included, to aid in planting trees ordered through Waseca SWCD Tree Program. This works great for planting Windbreaks.
