AGCO Sunflower® tillage equipment offers a wide range of choices for every soil type and cropping system. In “VERTICAL TILLAGE WITH AN EDGE,” read about how the serrated Saber blades of the Sunflower 6600 Series Vertical Tillage System cut through crop residue and help prepare the seedbed fall and spring. More “VERSATILE TILLAGE TOOLS” —the 4700 Series In-Line Ripper and the 4600 Series Disc Ripper—are highlighted in this article, which allow producers to adjust the equipment to match changing soil conditions and tillage goals.
