To plough a ley at a maximum depth of 10 cm is a major challenge.
The video shows how different machines succeed in handling the issue. The following machines are presented:
01:08 WecoDyn (Bärtschi Hüswil)
02:10 Kerner Komet (Alphatec)
3:23 Vario Digger (PL Agri - Service)
04:25 Treffler TG 300 (GVS agricultural)
05:22 Carré Penterra (Grunderco)
06:08 Einböck Taifun (Aebi Suisse)
06:52 Skim plough Ovlac (Aebi Suisse)
07:28 Standard Plough Kverneland (Agriott)
The choice of a machine for a specific farm is highly dependent on the prevailing soil conditions, the weed pressure and its crop rotation and should be carefully considered.
