... and the Chisel Ripper.
Over the years when looking for the short-term benefits of the Chisel Ripper to soybeans one of the most obvious benefits has been the lack of sudden death in beans. I attribute this to compaction reduction. You notice this problem on the headland, which you do not see when you use the Chisel Ripper. This supports my theory because this is where you will get the highest compaction from turning. This year our fields, for the most part, have matured enough that the yields will not be hurt by sudden death. That said we did notice that on one nearby field which we know to was highly compacted that the crop appears to be suffering at a near to 20% damage rate. In todays tight profit margins, you can't afford to lose any yields, especially those which can be easily rectified.
If you want to increase your yields, use our Chisel Ripper to make sure you get every cent out of every acre!
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.
