Description

Description

This high-tech harrow includes and further improves the strengths of the EB. Thanks to the addition of a third row of flexible tines, a scraping blade (as an option) and the possibilities of precise adjustments that are specific to the Scariflex series, it is the perfect mix between dung spreading harrow, meadow aerator and comb harrow. Designed for intensive use, this combined harrow allows to repair almost all damages, even if they are intense, with an unmatched precision, even on large surface areas.

Why and how maintaining pastures?

Why and how maintaining pastures?

It is advised to make use of the meadow aerator in the beginning of the season and shortly after the end of grazing. Slightly and superficially harrowing in order to spread dung is still very profitable. Moreover, a rainy and humid weather will boost the efficiency of the machine The evening dew will be ideal for dry weather periods.
Be aware that using the meadow aerator in summer may delay the grass growth when working too aggressively. In case of a long period of drought, it is therefore better to postpone this work or to adjust the pressure of the machine to a minimum. On the contrary, when expecting a rain period in a short time, the meadow aerator can be used freely as it will enable the ground to benefit from the rain.
Chop the large remains before aerating. Otherwise, dung will stick to it and not be spread properly. That is why it is interesting to combine the aerator with the JOSKIN rotary pasture topper.
Before and after the winter, meadows are strongly worked on with the whole machine weight and, most important, with the tines allowing to air the ground and tear off dead grass.
It is important to regularly maintain the pastures in order to preserve the good grass. Using a meadow aerator and a pasture topper prevents weed from spreading to neighbouring grounds.
Advantages

Advantages

  • Harrowing means:
  • • aerating the ground properly as well as increasing nitrification to the detriment of acidification;
  • • making the ground easy to penetrate for rain water and air;
  • • destroying moss and other weed;
  • • distributing farm manure and making it easier to decompose, thereby increasing its fertilizing value;
  • It is possible to directly bolt a seed drill on the chassis, or afterwards, to reseed meadows or to spread a selective herbicide.
