Stubble Cultivators

The advantages of stubble cultivation

The intelligent use of field stubble can bring significant agronomic benefits to arable farmers, and transform what was once considered a waste product into something highly nutritious for the soil. The incorporation of stubble, straw and other plant residues assists in speeding up decomposition for quicker nutrient release. Furthermore, it enables farmers to utilise soil moisture just after harvesting to establish an optimal climate in which microbes can thrive and work best.

Intermediate seedbed establishment

Employing shallow cultivation directly after the harvest encourages lost and dormant seeds to germinate. This also enables a seedbed to be established for intermediate crops such as mustard and radishes. It also removes the main source of nourishment for slugs – thereby acting as a pest control measure.

Preparation of a seedbed in mulch tillage systems

Stubble cultivation enables the creation of a seedbed before drilling which breaks down the soil pan and enables the root zone to have access to moisture and nutrients. The cultivation depth can be set in relation to the volume of residue left in the field.

Making wheel marks disappear

Today’s modern harvesting equipment can leave wheel marks in the field when working in less than ideal conditions. Stubble cultivation is the ideal way to remove them. The working depth can be adjusted in relation to the depth of the wheel mark. This in turn ensures improved seed placement and germination. Additional benefits include improved boom stability during spraying operations, as in field ridges have been eliminated as well as reduced operator fatigue during subsequent tractor operations.

Weed control

As weeds are extracted from the ground, they dry out and die on the surface. It is also possible to regulate the working depth depending on the type and concentration of weeds to be eliminated.
