Cousins of Emneth presents the Micro-Wing Oil Drill, an advanced agricultural tool tailored for shallow seedbed preparation and drilling. Engineered to optimize crop emergence while controlling black grass, this innovative system boasts Micro-Wing tines designed for shallow soil work and targeted seeding mechanisms. Its benefits extend from even crop emergence to minimal soil disturbance, enabling optimal residual herbicide activity for efficient weed control across crop rotations.
The Micro-Wing Oil Drill is a pioneering solution in modern agriculture, ensuring precise seed placement, effective weed management, and resource-efficient crop development.
Shallow Working Precision:
- Micro-Wing tines delicately cultivate soil at 75-100mm depth, preserving natural fissures for robust root systems and heightened nutrient absorption.
Targeted Seeding and Press Wheels:
- Utilises targeted seeding and razor ring ‘leg zone’ press wheels for consolidated seed planting, ensuring uniform seed depth and coverage with minimal moisture loss.
Even Crop Emergence:
- Ensures rapid and uniform crop emergence, facilitating pre-emergence herbicide application for effective weed control and optimizing residual black grass herbicides.
Low Soil Disturbance:
- Disturbs less than 20% of soil per pass, aiding fuel efficiency and preserving seedbed integrity, keeping weed seeds on the surface to inhibit buried black grass germination.
Optimal Residual Herbicide Activity:
- Minimal seedbed disruption allows for the best residual activity of grass weed herbicides, crucial for comprehensive weed control across crop rotations.
Versatile Strip Tillage System:
- Equipped with a double depth Micro Wing leg for minimal surface soil disturbance and deeper soil movement when necessary, adaptable for various crops and conditions.
