Planting should be fast, accurate and gentle on the tubers. Yet larger working widths, higher efficiencies and an increase of extreme weather events call for an increased focus on soil protection. The demonstrations will show the new and enhanced system solutions that planter manufacturers will be launching in the near future.
Mechanical Weed Control
Mechanical weed control is also becoming a viable option in traditional farming, especially in potato growing. The long growth period of potatoes and the fact that the tubers are grown in ridges makes this crop particularly suitable for mechanical weed control. However, the frequency and the timing of top work is subject to the level of weed infestation as well as the prevailing weather and soil conditions. Furthermore, the field should be sufficiently drained before top work is carried out.
