Scott County Conservation, in cooperation with the local chapter of Pheasants Forever, received a grant from Riverboat Development Authority to purchase a 4 foot Truax Native Grass Drill (FLXII-86).
The drill is designed for planting native prairie grasses at the required shallow depth. With three seed boxes, cool season grasses can be planted effectively. The drill can plant most types and textures of grasses, legumes and wild flowers. This is a no-till drill and can drill into residue or interseed into sod cover as well as a prepared seedbed.

Scott County Conservation Board also has a tree planter that is available to assist in planting bare root seedlings. An agreement is also required for use.
