Individuals look over the new nutrient applicator toolbar that the Paulding County Soil and Water Conservation District has for use.

PAULDING — Thanks to a grant from the U.S. EPA and the Ohio Lake Erie Commission, the Paulding Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) 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, 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 the Facebook page “Paulding Soil & Water Conservation District” and the website for a flyer and the latest details.
