Samco Field Lift Sub Soil
The Samco Field-Lift alleviates compacted soil and is the only dual purpose sub soiler on the market. Compacted soil reduces crop yields because of poor soil structure. Waterlogging in the topsoil rots seeds, reduces the soil temperature and excludes air.
Compaction can be the cause of a poor response to fertilisers. Roots cannot exploit the soil, plants are starved of the nutrients they need. Plants weakened by water logging, as a result of compaction are less resistant to disease and pest attack and could result in extra sprays needed. Drought can also be an issue; shallow rooting plants cannot obtain sufficient moisture and are quick to wilt. The optimum time to use the Samco Field Lift is after crops are harvested and right before sowing. The Samco field lift (subsoiler) breaks sealed and compacted soil up to 18 inches into the ground.
