A popular choice in Australia because of its reliability, strength and practicality, the Kelly Diamond Disc chain harrow has been brought to the US, so American farmers can enjoy the same benefits.
The Kelly Diamond Disc chain harrow is a stubble management tool. It works to prepare the seed bed, control weeds and shallow tillage. It also helps with herbicide and manure incorporation, seed incorporation, leveling and surface drying and warming.
Kelly Harrows will be offering chain harrows in sizes from 30 feet to 60 feet. These work well for soybean, corn and wheat stubble.
When asked about the product, a Kelly Diamond Disc spokesperson said, "These harrows are so efficient and versatile, we're certain all farmers will find a place for them. They easily replace the tandem disc, field cultivator and spice harrow."
The superior design of Kelly Diamond Disc harrows means consistent shallow tillage at 1.5 to 2 inches. The durable chains fill ruts and level fields at the same time. By rolling down stubble, they cause it to fracture and split, so it weathers better. This also encourages better microbial breakdown.
Kelly Diamond Disc harrows have flotation built in to the system. They create no downward force on the chains, so they can transverse any field your tractor can. “If your tractor can cross the field, so can the Kelly Diamond Harrow," said a company spokesperson.
