Vertical Tillage

Why Vertical Tillage?

Arable farmers must ensure their soils are well structured if they are to gain optimum yields in all seasons.

The Great Plains ‘Vertical Tillage’ concept provides a system-based approach that focuses on methods of avoiding the creation of compacted layers in the soil, which can inhibit all the natural processes that help feed the crop.

This includes the natural capillary action that enables water to percolate and drain through the soil, the development of a healthy root system that enables plants to efficiently access both nutrients and moisture, and the movement of beneficial organisms like earthworms.
