Farm Implements-Cultipacker

Hi,

Have you ever wondered what a cultipacker is? Today is your lucky day.

 

 

A cultipacker is a piece of agricultural equipment that crushes dirt clods, removes air pockets, and presses down small stones, forming a smooth, firm seedbed. Where seed has been broadcast, the roller gently firms the soil around the seeds, ensuring shallow seed placement and excellent seed-to-soil contact.

The cultipacker differs from the field roller in that it is made up of many sections that form peaks and valleys in the soil where packer has been used. Click here for more information.
