The Chisel Ripper moving forward
Everyone knows that if you are growing a great corn crop it starts with planting and does not end until it is harvested. Unlike soybeans, corn is a full season endeavor. The new hybrids have come a long way, smoothing over some of the rough spots. Mother nature sure seems to come up with new challenges as fast as science can adapt. One thing that I believe will never change in the ever-changing and ever challenging farm industry is that farmers need to get every dollar out of their fields, leaving nothing but the chance to make more profits the following year. The FarmBuilt Chisel Ripper has several ways to help farmers do just that.
Think of corn as more of having a lifecycle than a growing season. Fewer interruptions in this cycle will get farmers better results. It all starts at germination; the Chisel Ripper creates a healthier soil by process of aeration, creating a soil rich with living aerobic microbes. This will help get the farmers plants off to a good start leading to better root growth. The Chisel Ripper opens the soil up through the compacted layers for even larger root structure. This lets the hair roots go after untapped nutrients. After years this will deepen the topsoil.
Proper soil health and root growth lead to better and stronger plants. With sufficient and timely nitrogen your corn plants are better able to deal with the uncontrollable elements that mother nature sometimes throws our way.
If the plant stays viable longer to a fully matured lifespan the better the test weight will be. Better test weight adds up in a hurry. Then, add all of today's technologies in seeds and fertilizer and you can be confident you have done all you can do to leave nothing in the field but the chance of another great year next year. #Farm #Corn #Yield
hen you watch videos of Chisel Ripper in motion note how the soil flies from up around the rear shanks. That is one of the ways our tillage tool sets itself apart from the rest. We have designed the Chisel Ripper to shatter the soil use of forwarding motion. Chisel plows roll the earth over which requires more horsepower. That will not allow the chisel plow to go as deep as we are able. The shanks on a chisel plow are usually closer together, which requires more Horsepower per working foot. The forward shatter from the Chisel Ripper expands the furrows from the bottom point to the top. The center tines work what is left. If You compare the Chisel Ripper to a disc-ripper (this is the closest equivalent tool). The disc ripper forces the large points into the soil. They need to lift to perform there tasks and the heavy disc-blades to work the soil between the rows. When you are done, you have not aerated the soil plus used a lot of fuel and power to do it. If you are not a large enough farmer you may not have a tractor available. Our tool has everything covered. A regular V-ripper was the same issues. Then in wet soil both tend to smear and may not get the desired lift you need. With our tool, you able to get positive results in wet soil.
I personally have never let what others say or do influence what I know is possible. If someone says I cannot it becomes a challenge to me. I never stop trying to improve on whatever I am doing. No matter what job I have ever done and no matter what I feel, I look back and learn something from it.
