Farm Invention Of the Year
"The two discs, working together, create a tillage action completely different than you get with a chisel plow or field cultivator, or with a conventional disk plow," explains Leiblich.
"One disc digs into the soil; the other deflects the soil, directing it back almost into its original place. In the process, weeds are laid on top of the ground with virtually no soil left on the roots ù as is the case with conventional chisels and field cultivators."
Leiblich thinks his new-style disk plow is tailor-made for air seeders: "It'll prepare a seedbed with very little disturbance of the soil, yet is able to move through heavy trash without plugging." He's ready to go to the field with a 28 ft. wide version of his new invention which, in combination with an air seeder, will be used to plant in undisturbed wheat straw and stubble at 5 to 6 mph.
"We'd welcome inquiries from interested manufacturers, distributors or farmers in the U.S. and Canada," says Leiblich.
