In recent years, ploughing has once again gained more importance, especially due to the expansion of maize cultures. In the context of preventing crop disease, controlling weeds mechanically due to increasing resistance against a range of crop protection agents, and controlling mice and other pests, there still is no sustainable alternative to ploughing. Recent studies have shown that ploughing is, for example, unrivalled for loosening and aerating the main root zone to allow rapeseed roots to develop optimally, and ploughing thus establishes an ideal basis for high, reliable yields.
LEMKEN’s entire plough programme stands out through a comprehensive offer of features and accessories for all ploughs. This allows farmers and contract farmers to select the primary soil cultivation implement that is just right for their specific needs. The available features include mechanical and hydraulic stone protection systems, a range of options for selecting the distance between individual bodies to ensure blockage-free operation, and versions with continuous and graded working width adjustment.
