Mzuri, a British manufacturer of strip tillage machinery, will be displaying their popular Pro-Til Select single pass drill at LAMMA 2020.
Visitors to Mzuri’s stand 19.340 located in Hall 19 will see the versatile Pro-Til 3T Select and have the opportunity to sign up to ClubMzuri – a resource for benchmarking costs and sharing knowledge between growers who are established with the Mzuri system, growers just starting out or growers who are looking to take the leap.
As well as all the benefits of standard Pro-Til single pass establishment, the Pro-Til Select series can drill in a choice of narrower or wider row spacings. The narrow 33cm row spacing suits crops such as wheat, barley and oats whilst the wider 66cm rows make the Select models ideal for crops such as maize, oilseed rape and legumes, thanks to better suiting the natural architecture of the plants.
The manufacturer advocates the use of wide rows in these crops to generate greater light interception within the canopy and lower levels, promoting stronger, healthier growth and supporting higher yields. The free flow of air movement helps to reduce moisture and control the associated fungal diseases whereas the extra space between the leaves minimises the transfer of disease by contact.
In addition to carrying out multiple operations including tilling, fertilising, drilling and reconsolidation in one pass the Pro-Til system offers several coulter configurations to give users increased flexibility. From wide band, narrow band and precision units the Pro-Til Select can be tailored to different conditions and crops making it the ultimate tool for single pass establishment.
Across the two days, visitors to stand 19.340 will be able to sign up to the manufacturers initiative to help current Mzuri users and those looking to switch to get the best out of their system.
The project has been set up to help Mzuri users get the most out of their system by recording and sharing establishment data and best practice techniques. From growers who have been strip tilling for years to those just starting out, the project provides a platform for sharing knowledge and experience to further drive down costs and increase yields.
