Strip-till is where only the future seed furrow is cultivated, preserving a layer of undisturbed residue in the inter-row. By working only in the seed furrow, you give the crop every chance of success just like a conventional preparation. In the inter-row, you benefit from the advantages of direct seeding: water conservation, supression of weeds, improved soil biology and reduced mechanisation loads.
Strip-till is defined by four points:
With the STRIGER 100, you accumulate the advantages:
And all that for identical or even higher yields!
Strip till is a conservation farming technique that requires a certain amount of rigour to obtain satisfactory results. Several points must be respected to ensure the success of the strip-till approach.
First of all, it is essential to observe the soil carefully to analyse its composition (texture, mineral elements) and identify possible areas of compaction.
Attention must also be paid to the weed flora and the fauna in the field:
The climate of the region should also be taken into consideration:
The STRIGER 100 element is composed of different elements, each has a specific role to play:
The STRIGER 100 range has tool free adjustments to optimise the use:
All these adjustments are fast and reproducible across the machine to bring you a limitless level of comfort and precision.
Different cultivation strategies can be used at different times of the year depending upon the soil type and the conditions. Autumn only cultivations are favourable in heavy clay soil (+40%): work at 20 – 30 cm deep at low speed: 6 – 8 km/h
: Spring cultivations would uplift moisture and create a coarse structure. It is therefore imperative to only work in the autumn so that rainfall and frost do their job on the row over winter.
This early work makes it possible to have good drying conditions and facilitates soil loosening.
Autumn and spring: work at 15-30 cm depth at a speed of 6 to 10 km / h
For early harvests (cereals), it is advisable to go through with the STRIGER between the 15th of August and the 15th of October.
For late harvests such as maize, attention should be paid to harvest conditions and travel with the STRIGER in moist conditions.
In both cases, the goal is to create a coarse, cloddy and unconsolidated structure in order to let the winter conditions act.
During the spring, the goal is to warm, firm up and fertilise the furrow.
To avoid damaging the deep structure of the soil created by winter, the working depth should be set the same as the seeding depth.
Spring only: working from 10 to 20 cm deep at a speed of 8 to 12 km/h
The STRIGER pass should be made three weeks to three days before seeding on destroyed or green cover (pay attention to drying).
The crop must have all the necessary conditions for its germination: water – warmth – fine tilth and firm soil.
The STRIGER 100 offers the advantage of being able to fertilise your crops in the row, closer to the roots. KUHN offers complete liquid, solid or slurry fertiliser solutions.
Burial of the slurry when passing through with the STRIGER 100 allows you to increase the profitability of your machine with an additional option.
The STRIGER 100 point offers the best working performance with excellent loosening ability while maintaining minimal disturbance at the surface.
The adjustment of the working depth, from 7 to 30 cm, is fast and precise. No tools are needed, bringing you more comfort and saving time when adjusting your STRIGER 100.
The leg can can be equipped with three different points to suit your working conditions:
For optimum work quality in very shallow spring work, it is possible to equip your STRIGER 100 with double discs instead of the tine. They can effectively warm up the furrow and create fine earth.
Finally, side markers can also be added onto the STRIGER 100 3 metre, 4 metre 40 and 6 metre models.
