Purpose of a Furrow Press
During ploughing the soil is loosened to allow air and warmth into the soil. It is important that the soils do not dry out too much as this would impact the natural capillary action that provides a flow of nourishment to the germinating seed. Furrow presses are used when underground reconsolidation of the soil at the seeding depth layer is required. Rough clods in the seedbed are reduced in size. Their use enables the soil to be subsequently worked with the minimum of passes. This leads to reduced compaction and increased yields. Using a Cross Furrow Press, depending on the soil conditions and tillage program can speed up the creation of an effective seedbed, encouraging the re-establishment of capillary pores and microbe action in the soil growth layer. The Cross range of Furrow Presses can provide an excellent opportunity to give the soil back its structure in advance of seeding. It will allow the creation of an optimal soil moisture level at the depth where the seed germination and emergence takes place.
