Soil health drives drill choice – Farmers Guardian, 3rd March 2018March 4, 2018 3:36 pm
For one Herefordshire farmer and contractor, switching to the striptill drill system has seen improved soil health and drought resistance.
Prior to Mzuri, soil erosion was horrendous and the farmer remembers having to use a 21-tonne digger in a potato field to put the top soil back where it should be. Five years into striptill drilling, and the soil has changed unrecognizably, with inceased worm activity, improvements to water infiltration and more of a loam-like texture to the previously sandy soils.
