 CLEMENS - Subsoiler

With the increasing mechanization in the wine- and fruitgrowing the problem of consolidation and erosion increases as well. The consequence of that is the reduced nutrient- and waterabsorption. The CLEMENS subsoiler was developed to loosen the compressed zones aggressively and sustainable. Another benefit is, that the roots become activated by the cut and grow in the cultivated area. Because of the intensive cultivation optimal ventilation will be achieved. The maximum water storage capacity will be increased and the nutrients are more easily available for the plants.

The CLEMENS subsoilers are not only used to break compressed zones but also preventive so that compressions don´t even come up. Alternatively there are BISON-teeth in the selection of products, which will be assembled to the CLEMENS Hexagon. Also with those, compressed zones will be loosened up. Furthermore there are BISON-teeth with fertilizer-tubes which allow the subsoil-fertilization.
