Wedge ring roller: targeted reconsolidation ...

The roller's primary task is seedbed reconsolidation. Wedge ring rollers use rubber rings to form reconsolidated strips into which the seed is sown. The harrow that follows covers the seed with loose soil from the unconsolidated areas either side. This reconsolidation in strips ensures that the soil conditions around the plant is always ideal for the current weather conditions, and so provides the best chance of rapid, uniform plant development. The wedge ring roller thus serves as insurance for just-in-time cultivation. The wedge rings leaves a homogeneous, pre-consolidated strip without any stud marks. Compared to rollers with other profiles, this is a decisive advantage, resulting, above all, in a smooth run of the sowing coulters.
