VERTICAL TILLAGE

Why Vertical Tillage?

• Horizontal tillage leaves density change layers in the soil.

• Roots in a top, lower density layer are turned sideways

when a higher density layer is encountered.

• Vertical tillage leaves a uniform, unrestricted soil profile

that promotes maximum root development.

• Plants raised in a vertical tillage system are more drought

resistant, reach and utilize more nutrients, and have greater

standability due to healthier stalks and root systems.

• Vertical tillage INCREASES YIELDS!
