Sub-soiling under the row

(1984) Sub-soiling under the row. The Queensland Graingrower, 4 July 1984. p. 16 [Publication] [Special Collections]


The Kelley Manufacturing Company of Georgia, USA, says sub-soiling under the row is probably the most beneficial tillage practice that has been introduced in many years. This is a practical solution to overcome crop limitations of compaction resulting from heavy traffic over fields. Sub-soiling under the row allows rainfall or irrigation water to drain or seep through the broken hard pan area reducing soil and water run-off. This practice creates a controlled traffic pattern for tractor work, for example, for spraying and cultivating.
