Cultivation Rippers NZ | NSL Ripper at work

Features and Benefits

Eliminating tight, compacted soils (allowing them to drain and breathe) is a contemporary cultivation challenge – the result of intensive cropping and pressures on farm land and resources. Waterlogged paddocks, the compaction of heavy machinery, and constant cultivation at the same root depth can restrict plant root growth, and yields.

FarmChief’s new generation cultivation rippers have technology that never takes a backward step, combined with robust engineering, the highest spec’d on the market, they’re recognised for their exceptional strength and reliability. These effective, and seriously tough customers, break the pan, shatter sub-soil and lift and loosen the ground, leaving an aerated but firm finish. Paddocks are set up for secondary or tertiary cultivation, together with the prospect of improved yields, healthier crops, and better soil structure.

Testimonials

Stephen’s View

Stephen and Helen Rome, and son Scott, farm 530 hectares between Balfour and Riversdale in Northern Southland on soils that are predominantly heavy clay and alluvial river flat. Stephen has been working the family farm for over 30 years, growing cereals, running sheep, finishing lambs and grazing cows and heifers.

His interest in the NSL Chisel Plough was driven by wanting to reduce cultivation time. “We didn’t want to be continuously ploughing.”  To date it’s been used following cereal and short rotation crops such as kale which have been grazed by heifers or lambs.

Stephen has bought a bit of gear over the years from FarmChief, and says their fliers had kept the company and its brands to the fore. “They’re very good to deal with and nothing is a problem.”

He says the Chisel Plough, which is combined with double wavy discs, have been “very good” has done a good job of breaking up lumps, and got to a useful depth. “They’re also economical to operate.”
