Seedbed preparation for maximum field emergence
Seedbed preparation is a secondary cultivation process. For demanding crops with certain seed vitality and germinating properties, the seedbed will be of major importance and impact on an even field emergence and optimum crop development. The Kverneland seedbed cultivator TLG ensure a perfect seed layer with seed-to soil contact for access to capillary water from deeper soil layers. The seed coverage, on the other hand, requires a weatherproof crumbled and uniform reconsolidated seedbed.
Ideally, seedbed preparation should not be deeper than the sowing depth. Structural weaknesses of the soil must be improved in many places by deeper processing, but should be avoided in wet conditions and heavier soils because it would be fatal. The goal is to reduce the number of passes as much as possible to maintain soil aggregates and to ensure uniform consolidation.
The TLG consists of four working zones: the robust levelling board in the front, an effective cage roller for depth control, four rows of effective S-tines and a finger harrow or a single or double roller at the rear. This combination makes the TLG an ideal cultivator for the preparation of a very firm, levelled and fine seedbed. The flexible "bolt-on" principle allows changing the position of the cage roller from the front to in between the tine sections. Available working widths: 4.0, 5.0 and 6.0m.

For the first working zone "levelling" there are two different options available:
Both the levelling board and the Clod Board are designed in three sections to better follow the ground contours.
