Laapa 25575 48 Furrowcracker either
We hosted a demo of the "Furrow-Cracker" attachment to a
moldboardplough this fall on a heavy clay field.
The furrowcracke is the yellow thing on the side.
The results were impressing but unfortunately the plough was

The furrowcracker cuts slots in the soil right after it is
turned so cultivating needs will be reduced.
This lump of clay shows the effect of the furrowcracker.

After the Demo plow and tractor had left the field I
finnished plowing it the same day. In this picture the dark
part in the midle was plowed using a furrowcracker
attachment to the plow. Here 2 passes (10 furrows) have been
plowed without the attachment.
This is the first pass (without the attachment) next to
where the furrowcracker was working. Notice how the lumps of
soil are smaller to the right in the picture, hopefully
aking the following seedbedtillage easier.
