Primary Tillage - SDI-AG

John Deere’s Soil Management Systems help

you match the right tillage tool to the job at

hand. SMS helps you balance weed and pest

management needs, chemical and nutrient

incorporation, compaction management,

seedbed preparation and residue management.

Seedbed

Preparation

Maximizing your crop’s yield

potential starts with creating an

ideal seedbed. A secondary tillage

pass promotes faster emergence

and optimal growing conditions

for the rest of the season.

Incorporation

Tillage is a reliable means of

incorporating herbicides,

nutrients, and animal waste into

the soil. Incorporation reduces

pesticide runoff, nitrogen

volatilization and chemical and

fertilizer losses.

Residue

Management

Tillage is a responsible alternative

for managing heavy residue levels

and slowing erosion caused by

wind and water. Correct use of

tillage sizes or buries residue for

optimum equipment operation

and faster soil warming.

Weed

Management

Weeds rob your fields of soil

moisture and steal nutrients from

your crop. If left unchecked, they

make harvesting more difficult

and lower your grain quality.

Pest

Management

Insects and plant diseases can

devastate your crop yields.

Tillage reduces many insect

and plant disease problems by

incorporating the residue in which

these insects and diseases thrive.

Compaction

Management

The best plant genetics, soil

fertility efforts, and herbicide

programs cannot overcome the

yield reduction created by soil

compaction. Tillage eliminates

compaction that restricts root

growth, and increases soil pore

space for air and water to move.
