Drill Calibration from David McIntosh on Vimeo.

These days, no-till drills are no big deal in terms of their frequency of use. As with most equipment, proper maintenance and calibration become critical if the desired outcome is to be obtained. In the case of a forage drill, it's easy to overseed, underseed, or seed too deep or shallow if the drill is not properly adjusted and calibrated. University of Tennessee forage specialist and director of the UT Beef and Forage Center, Gary Bates, offers simple and straightforward advice on how to calibrate a no-till drill in this video. If you own or rent a no-till drill, it will be worth your time to take a look.
