Mzuri Strip Tillage

Conservation and strip tillage is a growing in popularity with many farmers as a way to reduce costs and improve profit margins.  Mzuri have dedicated their business to producing strip drills, low disturbance subsoilers and other conservation tillage machinery that can not only help your profits but also improve you soil health and ensure a sustainable farming future.

The Mzuri Strip Tillage System can quickly improve soil conditions and crop health while reducing over reliance in chemicals and intensive cultivation techniques without compromising your yields.

Strip Tillage

Strip tillage is the tillage of only a targeted area of the soil whilst leaving crop residue, retaining moisture, and improving orgainc soil health.  The Mzuri Pro-Till carries out multiple operations: seedbed preparation, fertilising, drilling and reconsolidation in just on pass, and all of this just in the area you need it. 

Mzrui direct drills also promote the use of previous crop residue, which provides food for the soils eco system, adding organic matter back into the soil to break down as nutrients.  This is he most effective use of straw by far, using the residue to improve soil structure and fertility.  With this in mind the Mzuri strip drill has been designed to cope with large quantities of trash and is capable of drilling directly into all types of crop residue with little or no prior cultivation.

In addition, the Mzuri is capable of drilling in a choice of narrow or wide row spacings which makes it highly versatile and compatible for work with a broad range of crops.

The Benefits

  • Long stubble helps to protect the soil from erosion 
  • Leaving chopped crop residue on the soils surface provides a barrier against evaporation and encourages work activity
  • Undisturbed soil is essential for improved capillary action and quick germiation 
  • The untilled soil around the roots is rich in nutrients, oxygen and water which is instantly available promoting quick and healthy root development.
  • The tilled strip ensures good soil to seed contact, providing the ideal environment for seed to germinate quickly.

The Range

Mzuri have a complete range of machinery for conservation and strip tillage:

The Pro-Til - The original Mzuri strip drill, still leading the way in direct drilling and suitable for almost any crop type
