Minimum Disturbance

Minimum or low disturbance is growing in popularity right now and much of our cultivation range is based upon it. But what are the benefits to this technique?

Low Disturbance,
High Reward.

As the science of soil health progresses our understanding of the ground beneath us, the benefits of minimum disturbance techniques become more apparent.

Working the medium depth subsoil means the top soil layer doesn’t become inverted and retains its structure while protecting the worm bed and retaining moisture and nutrients within the soil. This all increases overall soil health leading to better yield.

While the top layer is left alone our minimum disturbance cultivators are designed to work the middle layer, fracturing and loosening the section which assists drainage, aeration, nitrogen uptake and encourages crop rooting.

Layer Up

Agriweld’s minimum disturbance machines are designed to target the subsoil layer to retain the soil’s structure above and below. Keeping worm beds and other organisms intact as well as retaining organic matter in the soil. All our cultivation machines feature depth control to tailor the working section to your specific topography.

The technique also helps prevent run-off and flooding through water retention as noted in research by Seitz, S., Goebes, P., Puerta, V.L. in their article Conservation tillage and organic farming reduce soil erosion.
