Why choose Vertical Tillage? Because Vertical Tillage leaves a uniform, unrestricted soil profile that promotes maximum root development and increased yields. Plants raised in a vertical tillage system exhibit higher drought resistance, reach and utilize more nutrients, and have greater standability due to healthier stalks and root systems. Increase your yields ... by choosing a Vertical Tillage System from Great Plains!
Available with hydraulic auto-reset tine or shearbolt options and a choice of six rear rollers, the Great Plains Simba DTX® is extremely versatile. Designed as a mounted one pass stubble incorporator/soil loosener for tractors in the 200-360hp range, it can be used as a first entry machine into non- inversion tillage or to knock down ploughing, whilst loosening down to 400mm. It is also ideally suited to establishing oilseed rape straight into stubble, as it leaves a very level, fine and consolidated seedbed.
The benefits of selective soil loosening should never be underestimated, particularly following a wet autumn. Healthy root growth is essential if crop yields are to remain high. Any subsurface pans must be identified and then removed.
Incorporating the latest technology, the Flatliner offers the perfect solution.
A choice of two ranges provides maximum shatter of deeply embedded compaction layers with minimum surface disturbance across the working width. The Pro-Lift leg and point provide a very effective soil conditioning action with prolonged wear rates.
The Simba ST Bar with between 4 and 7 ST tines can be fitted ahead of Mounted X-Press models with working widths of between 2.5 and 4 metres. This transforms the machine into a one pass cultivator for tractors between 145hp and 220hp. ST tine options include Shearbolt protection and Bolt-On units. In addition, LD (Low Disturbance) tines are also available.
The Great Plains Simba TL is a linkage-mounted cultivator designed primarily for use on lighter soils, and in rotations including root crops and vegetables. It features three rows of spring-reset cultivating tines that can work deep enough to incorporate large volumes of trash, such as potato haulm or the remains of field vegetables, or perform a thorough soil loosening action ahead of further cultivation.
