The importance of removing compaction, improving drainage, and breathing new life into soil is becoming more evident with the intensive nature of today’s cropping and livestock farms. Damage from heavy harvest equipment, or large numbers of animals wintered results in long-term compacted soil layers, which prevent movement of water through the soil. Waterlogging in winter months, and hard, baked surfaces in summer months restricts root development and crop yield.
"The Supergrubber lets us open up badly pugged winter crop ground earlier, to start the drying process. We wouldn't get near the ground with another implement. They are also very good for steep ground, where it wouldn't be safe to drag the discs around. The progressive angle of the legs, means they don't take too much to pull, and we can really get across the ground with them."
