Land Rollers Flatten High Spots and Firm Soil Protecting your Equipment while allowing for a faster harvest of more crop
Land Rollers level fields without packing! High spots are smashed down with thousands of pounds of force, while the flat areas receive no more pressure than when you walk your field. Watch how it works below!
Rollers provide a smooth and level surface for improved seed-to-soil contact, better weed control, and reduced moisture loss. Germination of canola, forages and other small seeds is significantly improved. The firm smooth fields guarantee faster, easier harvesting for short crops like chickpeas, peas, lentils and soybeans. Because the land roller presses the rocks into the ground, it speeds up harvest — you can run closer to the ground and reduce yield losses from missed pods low to the ground, without sickle section breakage or damaging combine guts. With no surface trash, there is little chance of plugging your header at harvest. With no rock worries, field speeds can be increased—get more crop in the bin ahead of the weather. No more rocks wrecking $300, 000 combines!!
Rolling hay fields soft conditions will smooth out clumps allowing higher field speeds. Rollers punch small rocks into the sod, letting hay cutter bars to get closer to the base of plants. This maximizes yields and reduces cutter bar dam-age. Hay growers also see less damage to cutter bars, crimping rolls and baler knives.
- Rolling corn trash before planting breaks down root balls and firms the soil around trash. Stalks do less planter plugging and breakdown quicker with good soil contact.
- Packing with the roller after seeding firms the seedbed for uniform emergence. Any surface trash is flattened so combines don't pick up dirt at harvest and downgrade the sample.
- On longer term zero tillage fields, rollers can eliminate the majority of bumps in the field for easier farming.
