The high-speed disc cultivator has become firmly established as the most effective machine for fast, shallow cultivation and mixing of crop stubble. Intensive tillage and incorporation of soil and plant residue immediately following harvest quickly produces optimum germination conditions, and builds up organic activity.
"We milk 2600 cows in both North and South Islands, plus grow maize and various crops on 600 hectares of lease ground. We are constantly developing new ground to bring into production and the 4AG 970's are excellent for chopping up old, heavily thatched pasture and contouring rougher areas. Daily throughput is important to our size operation. so we're pretty happy to be averaging 3-4 hectares/hour!"
