The Residue Tillage Specialist, built by Salford Farm Machinery, does more than just provide a residue management solution for no-till farming operations. It "fluffs" and dries the soil to allow for earlier planting, and improves germination by creating uniform seed beds. In zero-till operations, the Residue Tillage Specialist can be used to apply and incorporate fertilizer, which reduces nutrient losses through surface erosion of the soil. The popularity of this equipment among no-tillers on three continents has allowed Salford Farm Machinery to expand operations, partner with other manufacturers to increase production and hire more people.
