Download Free Detailed Plans For The Rodale No-Till Roller
The roller is part of a one-pass system that allows farmers to control a soil-conserving cover crop and plant next season's cash crop at the same time by mounting two implements on the same tractor. By using the roller to push over and crimp the stems of a standing cover crop that has grown over winter, the system provides weed control, erosion suppression, moisture conservation, and an improved growing environment for many crops.
