With more than 10 years’ experience in the field of mechanical weed control, CMN maskintec A/S is the company with the most comprehensive expertise in this area. CMN maskintec A/S weeder harrows are known under the name CMN flex-weeder and are available in sizes from 1-20 metres. The main rule within mechanical weed control is to controling seed weed by covering it. Therefore, it is important to till the soil as thoroughly as possible, without damaging the cultivated crop. This is where the CMN flex-weeder differs from other weeder harrows in the market.
Evaluation of each individual system
The below table shows an evaluation by The National Department of Farm Buildings and Machinery, concerning the ability of various pressure compensation systems to adjust to uneven surfaces in the field.
The CMN flex-weeder is equipped with 1 m sections that are centre mounted round its own central axis. In this way, the harrow sections will not jump at high speeds or in heterogeneous soil classes. The only 1 m wide sections ensure that the harrow adjusts to unevenness across the direction of travel.
The CMN flex-weeder is equipped with purpose-built straight double-coiled tension spring tines continuously adjustable from 90° vertically to 45° backwards. Several years’ research has proved that this tine ensures a very uniform tillage in depth and moves a large amount of soil without damaging the cultivated crop. It has also been proven that the CMN tines catch up to 80 % less stones than other makes. If the CMN pneumatic seed drill is mounted on the CMN flex-weeder, it is possible to establish the catch crop simultaneously with the last weed control harrowing
The CMN pneumatic seed drill is very suitable for the seeding of all small-seeded crops
The CMN pneumatic seed drill 280EP, the ideal solution for mounting on e.g. ridge drills, rollers, stubble cultivators.
