SUNFLOWER’S ANSWER TO VERTICAL TILLAGE
Vertical tillage systems were created to address different needs than traditional tillage systems. Farmers using no or minimal tillage in their operations found new crop varieties were more difficult to manage in terms of residue. They needed a tool to help with residue breakdown that was less aggressive than a disc harrow. Other farmers wanted a tool that could help manage residue and better prepare soils for planting with reduced horizontal movement.

Now moving into their second decade, vertical tillage practices have had time and opportunity to be observed and improved. Their aim is to manage residue and open soil for warming and drying while minimizing its horizontal movement and reducing compaction layers.
