An average farm can lose up to 15 bushels per acre due to this pinchrow compaction. TrackTill uses its specially designed arrangement of 10-inch, ground-driven tines to eliminate this compacted area, helping you maximize root development. 9010 TRACKTILL Eliminate pinch-row compaction and achieve higher yields » 10" ground-driven tines fracture compacted soil tracks from...
