Bentleg opener brings speed and control to no-till.. A University of South Australia (UniSA) engineering project is a step closer to delivering a new furrow opener design that reduces soil disturbance and increases operating speeds in no-till seeding... "We need to investigate this interaction between opener design and speed to maintain low soil disturbance, to see why some designs perform better at high speed," he says...

Research into the use of bentleg furrow openers at seeding has underlined their potential benefits for no-till farming systems... "Excessive soil throw limits the furrow backfill, reducing soil cover over the seed, and creates ridging between adjacent seed rows, resulting in additional soil cover which increases seeding depth and potentially induces crop damage from herbicides," Mr Barr said... Overall, the 95 mm offset bentleg design was able to maintain its baseline lateral soil throw at twice the sowing speed while maintaining 100 per cent furrow backfill, according to Mr Barr...
