cover crop drill

Location
Ceredigion
Why do you want to drill small seeds on ploughing , without knowing all the facts that's sounds odd , at the low end a vicon wagtail would do a perfect job , or the high end a Tyne Harrow with a computerized Seeder fitted , drill would be my last choice ,
Suppose it depends what's in your cover crop

I’ve just adapted my short discs do putting my covers in and had some really good results.

It's for a customer who wants to keep soil in good order by using half their available area for a specialist application, and cover crop on the other half . It is odd but it's what they want to do,
Oats first (on ploughing ) then phacelia into oat stubble. They are experimenting and aren't bothered by cost.

If cost is not an issue then an Erth Drill will drill anything and built like a tank , no 1imo
