The end of one harvest is the beginning of the next harveststoppel hurricane

Depending on the farming system, the soil and weather conditions and the crop rotation the demands and objectives can be different in detail. But the basic goals are clear:

- Prevent evaporation through the stubble
- Control of weeds (especially root weeds)
- Activate the straw rotting
- Germination of volunteer grain

In order to achieve these objectives a powerful and effective machining technology is necessary. Einböck offers with its universal cultivators the right machine for stubble tillage for each user. Experience has shown that the aimed working depth for the first stubble cultivation should be between 5 and 7 cm. In this working depth, volunteer grain and weeds which are close to the surface are placed in a germinable depth and the underlying soil is preserved for drying out. Also the recently more and more important fuel consumption is kept on a low level at this working depth. It reduces operating costs and protects the environment.

At 5 – 7 cm working depth enough soil is moved to mix the straw residues and to accelerate the rotting. Crucial for the control of root weeds is a full cut of the entire soil surface even at this low working depth. Therefore the cultivators of Einböck can be equipped with overlapping wing shares (HURRICANE) respectively duckfoot shares (TAIFUN).It is recommended, as far as possible, to till the stubbles at a small angle to the seed row. Thus, the crop residues are still better mixed and tramlines are better tilled.

All Einböck cultivators for stubble tillage are designed with many tines arranged on more than three beams – it’s is worth it: More tines on more beams results in better mixing and crumbling of the processed material combined with low risk of clogging.

To improve the soil and increase the yield of the following main crop it is recommended to seed cover crops in one pass with the stubble cultivation. For rigid machines (up to 3 m) therefore the DRILLBOX is a popular solution. For larger working width is the pneumatic seeder P-BOX-STI with the SPEED-TRONIC control unit unbeatable in respect of adjustment and distribution accuracy.
