As well as all the benefits of a standard Mzuri PRO-TIL drill, the Mzuri PRO-TIL SELECT series offers growers the ability to plant in a choice of narrower or wider row spacings. This makes the Select particularly suited for maize, oilseed rape, legumes, sugar beet and other crops which are normally planted in wider rows.
Not only does a bigger inter-row allow the crops to meet their nutrient demand and produce a stronger root system, it also awards better light interception from the top of the canopy all the way down to the base of the stem. This, in return, results in a healthier, bushier and higher-yielding crop.
The free flow of air movement helps to reduce moisture and control the associated fungal diseases whereas the extra space between the leaves minimises the transfer of disease by contact.
The additional width of the inter-row, coupled with a high clearance of the tine legs, enable users to work with huge amounts of surface residue which helps improve the soil structure. The straw acts as a mulching layer to protect the soil from rain compaction and seals in the natural moisture, preventing the ground from drying out. It also harbours a range of beneficial fauna and helps to rapidly increase earthworm population which are vital for improving soil fertility and structure.
The PRO-TIL SELECT is available in 3, 4 and 6 metre trailed models.
