The LDL has been designed from carefully listening to farmers throughout the past year who are Direct Drilling or practising Min-Till and are experiencing compaction at depths of 6"- 10". The machine is a Low Disturbance Loosener and will be used to lift at full width at depths of up to 12". It will be used primarily to loosen the soil structure straight after combining and removing the compaction pan. It has become apparent that farmers are now starting to experience poor crop establishment and growth due to the compaction generated from machinery traffic, rain fall etc.
The machine offers the versatility in loosening at full width with a packer of choice to enable a level weather proof finish for drilling at a later date.
