Cultivation & Planting

Our team want your crops to have the best possible start.

Our experience and equipment combined with your knowledge we can make it possible.


We work with the very best planting equipment to get accurate population and crop coverage.

We offer both conventional and Strip-tillage of Maize, Fodder-beat and turnips. With minimum tillage, soil conservation is achieved.

Grass Seeding

Our 4 meter Horsh ponto drill makes light work of regrassing and planting crops. A system drill with discs/levelling boards/tines and Stock Ag spinner for clover application in one pass. Using our experience, we provide a range of options to re-grass pastures including direct drilling and broadcasting and rolling. We use Trac Map & Tractor equipped guidance.

Soil Preparation

We use a reversible Kverneland plough to aid both drainage and root growth. In most cases we use our Amazon 4 metre Power Harrow to evenly redistribute and break up the soil. We contour the area to create an even seedbed for better cropping results. We are able to offer Strip Till/minimal till if required. Please contact us to discuss.

Soil Aerator

Our James soil aerator allows soil to breathe and increase potential for root growth. Our machine has a 2.5 metre width and working depth of 25cm allowing pastures and crops the ability to maintain growth during dry conditions. The Aerator reduces excess water on surfaces and breaks up compacted soil allowing for better overall soil conditions.

Leveling, Rotary Hoeing, Rotary Tilling, Ground Discing

We have the equipment to suit the conditions of the season. If you require any type of cultivation, we have the solution for you and can get your crop or pasture sorted.
