Clearwater SWCD purchases No-Till Drill

Pastures and hay ground in and around Clearwater County are getting some attention from the new Great Plains no-till drill the Clearwater Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) recently acquired.  The Clearwater SWCD has taken advantage of Clean Water Assistance Grant dollars to begin a soil health program to improve water quality, soil health and pasture and hay ground production. Utilizing no-till practices will be a primary focus of this program. Click here for our brochure
