Agrowplowing or non-inversion tillage as well as direct drilling provide positive answers to sustaining soils for highly productive farming. The Agrowplow Soil Care System of Farming encompasses these techniques.
The Soil Care System of Farming has been developed to provide farmers with better returns from their crops and stock. It advocates no tillage or minimum tillage because of moisture losses and soil degradation brought about by each cultivation. These methods can be used in a variety of ways to suit each soil and seasonal condition for creating healthier, sustainable root bed and seed bed environments.
The unique range of specially developed Agrowplows and Agrowdrills are machines which will allow you to obtain the best advantages of non-inversion tillage, direct drilling and minimum tillage practices - for crop and pasture establishment in conservation farming systems.
Agrowplowing or non-inversion tillage
Non-inversion tillage is lifting and shattering hard soil pans without soil inversion. The task is accomplished with minimum soil surface disturbance ensuring that precious top soil is left on the surface and minimal moisture is lost to the atmosphere.
Top soil is not mixed with less fertile subsoils or less fertile subsoils mixed with fertile top soil. The topsoil remains virtually undisturbed and is less susceptible to wind and water erosion than conventionally cultivated soils.
The patented design of the Agrowplow shank prepares and renovates the root zone of the soil without inversion.
This unique ability of root bed renovation improves water infiltration, humus levels, soil structure and sustainable productivity. Root development is enhanced by an unrestrictive soil environment.
