With the widespread adoption of conservation farming techniques such as zero/minimum till and controlled traffic, modern farmers are finding themselves faced with both emerging challenges and opportunities in the broadacre farming industry.
Improved soil structure, reduced water run off, better soil moisture retention are all by-products of the adoption of these conservation farming techniques and are the driving factors behind growth in profitability and sustainability for the industry.
The advantages in the adoption of conservation farming techniques do not come without challenges, particularly in the area of the specialised machinery required. The high level of stubble retained from previous crops provides many benefits to the soil, but makes the task of planting the next crop into it a real challenge.
Disc Planter or Tine Planter?
Within the field of planting machinery, the broad distinction can be made between tine planters and disc planters. Many farmers can be heard to swear by tine planters, as do an equal number sing the praises of disc planters. Manufacturers, naturally, are convinced that the particular type of machine that they make is the solution to all situations.
With this in mind, the Stubble Warrior has been conceived as a modular planting system that can be configured with disc openers or tines, or both, to suit the changing needs and conditions associated with the adoption of modern conservation farming techniques.
Interchangeable tooling options
The range of interchangeable tooling options is extensive and caters particularly for the need to change between a disc opener and tine opener depending on the given conditions. The Stubble Warrior planting system ensures that a farmer is not locked into, or out of either disc or tine planting.
Both of our Australian made row units are mounted to our Parallelogram mount to allow maximum ground following capabilities with minimum effect
