Conventional Tillage Field Cultivator Disk Plow 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! Vertical Tillage
TURBO-TILL SERIES II TURBO-CHOPPER - Very versatile tool that sizes residue and prepares the seedbed without introducing yield damaging horizontal layers TURBO-MAX - Turbo-Max with its 7 1/2’’ blade spacing and adjustable gang angle from 0° to 6° more aggressive leveling, weed removal, and enhanced residue sizing. SUB SOILER - Eliminates compaction layers and soil density changes in one pass. Choice of no-till or straight leg shanks. Vertical Tillage Tools 6 | 7 - This allows for a “crisscross” pattern for chopping residue and working the soil while still maintaining the benefits of vertical tillage. ULTRA-TILL - A finish tool that levels the soil without using sweeps. This tool evenly distributes residue and levels the field without causing a density change that can discourage root growth. TURBO-CHISEL - Designed for the corn-on-corn producers to loosen all root balls, size residue, and work horizontally a minimum of 4” deep.
