The new roller from Knoche crumbles the soil intensively and effectively separates weeds from the soil. When it comes to weed killing, cultivators usually fail to cleanly remove the roots. However, de-earthing is important so that the root does not root again after it has been successfully loosened from the soil. The root should lie on the surface of the soil without any attachment to the soil, so that it can dry out there. The KNOCHE crumbling roller copes with this task: The 400 diameter with open cage technology – without an internal axis – has a very high rotation speed. This causes the soil to be separated from the root – similar to the separation in a centrifuge. The crumbling roller thus has two effects: on the one hand, the soil is crumbled more intensively and, on the other hand, the weeds can be effectively separated from the soil. An important expansion of the KNOCHE product range for all farmers who want to carry out sustainable weed control on a mechanical basis. The new KNOCHE CRUMBLER ROLLER 400 (FLK400) is available for the KNOCHE ÖKORUBBER 300 (3 m) and 450 (4.5 m). The roller can also be retrofitted for all previous models. The ÖKOGRUBBER with crumbling roller can be seen at the Ökofeldtage from June 14 to 15, 2023 in Ditzingen at the KNOCHE stand, B 4.10.
KNOCHE machines in Farming Simulator 22
This week starts the release of the brand new video game Farming Simulator 22! We are happy to be there as an official partner with our machines part of the game. Which machines you can expect, you have to find out yourself.
We wish you a lot of fun playing the game!
One of the greatest challenges in rapeseed stubble cultivation is not to bury the fine rapeseed too deep. If they are buried too deep, there is a risk that they will go into dormancy (seminal dormancy).
In this condition, the rapeseed can germinate for several years. For this reason, it is essential to only work ultra-shallowly when cultivating rape stubble.
This is no longer a problem with the SPEEDMAX knife roller. Due to the special blade geometry, the blades do not penetrate deeper than 2 cm into the ground.
This gives you enough soil movement to stimulate the grains to germinate, to mix the organic material on the surface and, on the other hand, to save valuable soil water.
The brand new ÖKOGRUBBER has been available since this summer! Thanks to it special construction, you can work ultra-flat with the ÖKOGRUBBER. In this case, ultra-shallow means at a depth of 2 – 3 cm below the soil surface. This allows you to cut off root and problem weeds over the entire area and, thanks to the trailing harrow, place them on top of the soil surface where they dry up. This ultra-flat cultivation not only saves fuel and time, but also lowers the risk of resistance within the weeds.
News from Knoche Maschinenbau. We are looking forward to the start in August 2021.
