Tillage and seeding equipment specialist, Great Plains, will be showcasing the new mounted X-Press VX short disc harrow and ST toolbar at CropTec on Stand 126, where the manufacturer’s emphasis is very much on solutions designed to maintain good soil structure.
Great Plains’ experts will be on hand to offer advice and guidance on the ideal disc and tine selections to suit the farmer’s particular cultivations task, soil type and operating conditions and to explain the key features around the company’s recently launched low disturbance and full cultivation modular seeding systems.
“Great Plains has a proven track record in the development of disc, tine and consolidation systems,” said David Holmes of Great Plains. “The variety of options available with our cultivators and seed drills reflect ‘best practice’ in soil structure management and cover a diverse range of needs from sub-soiling and surface cultivations to consolidation, cover crop establishment and full and minimum disturbance crop establishment.
“Many Great Plains tillage products, for example, offer full disc angle adjustment of between zero and twenty-six degrees, enabling the user to vary how aggressively the soil is worked. Disc choices include notched discs and SoilRazor discs for dealing with heavy residue and more challenging soil conditions. Tine options include Pro-Lift, a deeper working tine with three different wing options, the ST tine for shallower cultivations and our LD low-disturbance tine. We also have examples of our wide range of consolidating rollers on the stand,” he added.
