CUSTOM SEEDING

Wilson Seed Farms, Inc uses no-till seed drills that can plant into sites that have had existing vegetation eliminated with herbicides. We can also plant into a well packed field or waterway that has been disked and packed to firm the soil before planting. Wilson Seed Farms can provide specific seed mixes to comply with NRCS requirements. We can also create custom seed mixes for any particular environmental condition.

 
     

CUSTOM HARVESTING

Wilson Seed Farms, Inc uses a custom made seed stripper to harvest Prairie Grasses and/or wildflowers. By utilizing the seed stripper to harvest the seed, there is little to no destruction of the established habitat. The Seed Stripper strips the seed head off of the plant without cutting the plant off, leaving the plant intact for wildlife habitat.
