The performance of the BT Chopper® is easy to see as you watch cornstalk residue quickly decompose over the winter months. As a result, important nutrients quickly return back into the soil to help grow next year’s crop.
If you managed cornstalks with Calmer Stalk Rolls in the fall, you’ll be planting into the healthiest soil possible. The smaller pieces do not obstruct the row cleaners on the planter which are often already decayed by spring. Take a look at the in-field photos or videos to get an up-close view.
what They’re Saying
“I’ve been no tilling for over 20 years and the stalk stance and weed control are superb! The confetti residue stays put where it is and my earthworm population is eating it right up! I recently looked at an old book on corn production, which showed a guy going into the fields to chop his stalks to get the desired organic matter; however BT Choppers® do exactly that, but better!”
THE 1615 CUSTOM HEAD IS ALSO EQUIPPED WITH THE CALMER BT CHOPPERS THAT SIZED THE HEAVY CORN RESIDUE PREPARING THE FIELD FOR THE FOLLOWING PLANTING SEASON.
I basically don’t have any corn residue on the ground at the end of bean harvest here.
