Paulding SWCD

Thanks to a grant from the US EPA and the Ohio Lake Erie Commission, the Paulding Soil and Water Conservation District has a nutrient applicator toolbar available for application.

The attachment is a 40-foot-wide John Deere 2510H single product toolbar with 30-inch spacing between injection sites and dry tank.

Dry nutrients are placed below the soil surface at a depth up to 4.5 inches.

Equipment will be operated by Paulding SWCD staff on enrolled acres. To apply for the program, producers must provide record of a precision soil test conducted in the last three years with a subscription for variable rate application.

Interested producers who would like to enroll acres and know program specifics and costs, can contact the Paulding SWCD office by phone at 419-399-4771, via email at, or visit the office at 900 Fairground Drive Suite B, Paulding.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page “Paulding Soil & Water Conservation District” and our website for our promotional flyer and the latest details.

Together, we can work to supply the nutrients needed for successful yields while also ensuring they stay in the root zone.
