Dry farming areas where soil moistur conservation and soil erosion control are essential will benefit from this implement. The tool standards are staggered to allow crop residue and cut weed growth to remain on the soil surface. This cultivator can be used for primary tillage, seedbed preparation, weed control, and inter-row cultivation. The rigid steel frame can be built with additional toolbars to permit greater trash clearance.
