Prototype farm machine trial explores new ways to prevent soil erosion

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone one.

I haven't been here for ages but thought I would share this:

The Creyke Wheel Track Combi being trialled at Lodge Farm, Felmingham. 

 

The machine uses angled tines to break up the compacted tramlines, while a wheel-track roller creates heaps and hollows in the soil to capture rainwater and give it time to percolate into the ground – rather than creating a smooth channel which can direct water downhill in a damaging torrent.
