INNOVATIVE STRIP-TILL MACHINE
Mzuri Pro-Til tills only thin strips of soil, applies fertilisers over the whole strip, places seeds in it, at a set and constant depth, providing the ideal environment for quick germination, plant growth and high, perfect quality yields.
The Mzuri Pro-Til technology consists in tilling only thin strips, in which seeds are sown and then plants grow, and later post-harvest residue from the first harvest is left in the untilled inter-rows. This retains moisture and limits organic matter losses, which has a positive impact on the soil’s structure and fertility. Multiple passes of machines for ploughed or ploughless farming lead to soil degradation, excessive compaction, quick mineralisation of organic matter and have a destructive impact on biological life in the soil. Strong compaction interferes with the air-water equilibrium, cutting off easily accessible oxygen and nutrients from the roots of cultivated plants. Mzuri Pro-Til has been designed to assure tillage, fertilisation and sowing in one pass directly over a stubble field.
