Stubble Incorporation

Hello there!

I'm in Australia and most of the time we burn all our wheat and barley stubbles before planting. But am wanting to shift to incorporating all the straw back into the soil. In Australia the types of machines for this are very limited. Was wondering what the best machines you guys use in the USA are?

Degelman Protill. Or any of the other high speed discs.

But why incorporate it as opposed to leaving it stand?

Sow on 10" spacings and the stubble load is far too great to sow through. Crops went 8 T to the hectare last season. Bailed all try to header trailings and still way to much to sow through. Also inhibits chemical success.

Do you heavy harrow or can you. We can grow heavy straw loads here I don't know how they compare to those numbers most heavy harrow once sometimes twice when it's hot and dry then direct seed

No I don't harrow mate, looking to turn it all back into the soil to build up.organic matter. As we don't run livestock I think it will be important in the long run.

Where are you Nick to get 8t/ha last year? Coastal I guess.

Anyway, if your on the east coast let me know if you want to hire a speed tiller for a trial. Speed discs are the go for what you talking about. A mate of mine hires Degelman tillers. These are also the Cats meow.

A lot of irrigators here turn stubble in with speed discs, but you need some HP.

What are you sowing with? If your not happy with the carrier your not going to be happy with any of the speed disc/vertical tillers as they all do essentially the same thing. Horsch terrano might mix it deeper into the profile, waltanna farms have a couple in Hamilton if your anywhere near there (assume you must be Western Vic with yields and conditions like that?) Otherwise muddy river ag will demo the horsch range. Otherwise a disc seeder and a seed terminator on your combine
