A perfect seedbed is the basis for successful germination and thus for high yields.
An optimal seedbed with a load-bearing seed horizon where the seeds can be embedded at an even depth over the whole area of the field is the basis for high field emergence and thus for high yields.
It requires an unbroken association between the seed horizon and the capillary water-conducting lower layer to ensure germination in the absence of rainfall. Additionally, rapid heating of the soil and adequate oxygen supply for germinating seeds and a fine crumbled, uniform reconsolidated seedbed for optimal seed coverage are important too.
Power harrows have long since become typical combination machines because they are largely independent of the soil conditions. On heavy soils, it reaches an intensive crumbling. Under light conditions, it can work flat and at a lower rotor speed. The sets of tines rotate on vertical axles for fully horizontal tillage of the soil – no inversion of soil layers and no vertical compression leading to hardpan formation. Consequently, there is no better alternative for seedbed preparation.
A power harrow together with a seed drill is finally an economic high-performance combination. Seedbed preparation and seeding in one pass! All Kverneland power harrows models are exclusively designed to be combined with Kverneland seed drills either modular with front tank and colter bar or with cultivator mounted seed drills.
