AbstractA deep-furrow drill-arm assembly for a Rangeland drill was developed, tested, and evaluated. Horizontal disk angle was the single most important factor affecting construction of an adequate furrow. This angle varied among sites and was influenced by vegetative cover and soil conditions. The final design was an assembly with an adjustable disk angle. Seedling stands in deep furrows were equal to or superior to those in standard furrows.
