A STRONG SELECTION OF CULTIVATORS
Irrespective of the type of seedbed cultivator used, some fundamental elements must be present in order to achieve good crop establishment.
Apart from moisture, all other elements are under the farmer’s control, and a well-established seedbed is
a must for all crops. DALBO’s quality seedbed harrows can be adapted to all soil types.
The ROLLOMAXIMUM is the premium precision seedbed cultivator on the market, designed for extremely efficient and accurate preparation of seedbeds in a single pass.
CULTIMAX is a heavy-duty 7-row seedbed cultivator with high working capacity. It is the ideal cultivator for seedbed preparation on ploughed soil.
CULTITRAIL is a trailed seedbed cultivator with a transport width of only 2.50 m. The simple construction is equipped with a hydraulically adjustable cracker board and a 5-row harrow section with spring tines, which provides an exceptional cultivating effect
CULTILIFT is a heavy-duty mounted seedbed cultivator designed for cost-effective seedbed preparation. The standard configuration includes a mechanically adjustable levelling board, a 4-row harrow section and a depth adjustment roller at the rear.
Benefit of a well-established seedbed
The same basic conditions for all seed types and even germination are necessary in order to achieve a good yield.
This is namely a well-established seedbed that maintains a constant depth and takes the seed to be sown into account. The larger the seed size, the deeper the seedbed should be.
Uneven seedbeds result in different sowing depths and uneven germination. A poorly established seedbed with uneven germination could also increase the need for using pesticides or mechanical cleaning, as weeds will have better conditions to thrive among the small or poorly established crops.
The well-established seedbed consists of a consolidated base at a constant depth with loose, porous soil without large clods on top.
This will ensure the seed’s access to water and nutrients from the firm base where the water can be drawn up, while the loose soil at the top will make it easy for the seed to germinate and break through.
A loose soil without clods will, at the same time, dislodge habitats for snails and other pests that thrive in cloddy soil, in which they have many opportunities to hide and reproduce.
The ideal seedbed can be achieved by using any one of DALBO’s cultivators and can be adapted to the individual farmer’s needs, as our seedbed cultivators are constructed using strong frames and harrow tines, which ensure extremely stable harrowing and even depth in the seedbed.
The cultivators have also been constructed using various levelling and packing options to ensure the optimal seedbed.
