Repeated journeys along tramlines with a variety of attached devices or with the grape harvester during the harvest period causes soil compaction. This can lead to a shortage of nutrients, waterlogging and stress for the plants in the following year.
HEXAGON with Bison tines
Bison tines are the economical solution for raising the soil to a depth of approximately 45 cm, and therefore loosening it again. The tines are particularly suitable for green tramlines where the cutting of the turf leaves wintery dampness in the soil. This then freezes and as a result breaks the earth tunnels.
The Bison tines are attached to the HEXAGON frame, which can also be used for attaching cultivator tines and disc harrows or as an equipment carrier for the RADIUS SL and the MULTICLEAN.
If the tines are attached to the middle of the HEXAGON, then they will break up the soil compactions that have been caused by, for example, harvesters. If they are installed on the side of the frame, directly behind the tyres, then they will instead lift the ground that has been compacted by the tractor.
Another optional possibility is the application of fertilisers in the sub root area.
