BLU-JET StripTill Systems decrease production costs.
According to the National Resources Conservation Service, the definition of StripTill includes the following requirements: the seedbed preparation is completed in a narrow band no more than 1/3 of the row width, and crop residue and soil consolidation is left undisturbed between the seedbed areas.
Different soil properties, weather patterns, and local regulations affect the way in which StripTill is accomplished in various areas.
StripTill allows growers to combine the benefits of NoTill and Conventional Tillage. The advantages of StripTill over NoTill include faster warm-up of the seed bed and better residue management. The advantages over Conventional Tillage include erosion control and moisture conservation. An advantage over both NoTill and Conservation Tillage is the time and money saved with StripTill. StripTill requires fewer trips across the field and less fuel than Conservation Tillage and less fertilizer than NoTill.
BLU-JET One-Pass StripTill Systems further decrease the input costs. The ability to till, fertilize, and plant in one pass saves costs in fuel, man power and fertilizer. BLU-JET StripTill Systems combine with the BLU-JET LandTracker 9400 for a compact, versatile pull-type unit.
The BLU-JET row unit components work individually with the soil, residue and obstacles to maximize performance while also reducing the maintenance requirements compared to most competitive units.
For even more versatility, the BLU-JET StripTill Systems have the ability to apply dry, liquid, NH3, or dual placement fertilizer solutions by injecting them while creating the strip.
Precise fertilizer placement helps to maximize yield potential by allowing nutrients to be taken up at the early stages of growth.
