Wedge ring roller: targeted reconsolidation – for optimum plant development
A roller’s primary task is soil reconsolidation. The wedge ring roller uses rubber rings to form reconsolidated strips in which the seed is sown. The harrow that follows covers the seed with loose soil from the unconsolidated area. Reconsolidating in strips ensures that the soil structure around the plants is always right for the current weather conditions, and so provides the best chance of rapid, uniform plant development. The wedge ring roller thus serves as insurance for just-in-time tilling. The wedge rings leave a homogeneous, pre-consolidated strip without any stud marks. Compared to rollers with other profiles, this is a decisive advantage, resulting, above all, in a smooth run of the sowing coulters.
