Can Terraland Incorporate Farmyard Manure?
This contribution is in response to the frequent questions from farmers regarding whether or not Terraland can incorporate farmyard manure with good quality. This is also to refute the negative opinions that farmyard manure is best incorporated by tillage.
A lot has been written on the comparisons of a standard plough vs. the Terraland chisel plough, namely when it comes to its benefits in disturbing the compacted subsoil, deep loosening and soil aeration. Let’s have a look at the ability to incorporate farmyard manure using the Terraland chisel plough and a standard plough. To check this technology, we selected a small-plot trial on an adjacent land near our production plant in Rychnov nad Kněžnou, namely the land of the agricultural organisation of ZEA Rychnovsko a.s.
The ability to incorporate farmyard manure by tillage and by a chisel plough was checked on the individual plots. The ability to incorporate farmyard manure was compared with the following doses: 20t/ha, 40t/ha and 80t/ha.
