Reduced tillage

The proposed tillage system for the rapid and economic renewal of sugarcane plantations has been called “Reduced Tillage (LBR)”.

For the renewal of crops that do not require leveling it is possible to carry out the preparation of the Soil with a reduced number of tasks that provide the sowing bed necessary for the development of the seed. Among these tasks, the destruction of strains, destruction of large lumps and furrowing are contemplated. Sometimes planting is done on the entresurco of the previous plantation preparing this space with implements of vertical tillage. This practice results in a reduction of production costs and a minor alteration of the soil.
