If we talk about good agricultural practices, no-tillage is one of the main issues. It emerges as an innovative and sustainable way that revolutionized the way of farming and that more and more producers adopt for their fields. What is no-tillage, how does it work and why is it so important for the future of agriculture.
Direct seeding, what it is and how it works
In principle, it is good to explain that direct seeding is a different cultivation method from the rest. It offers the possibility of getting the seed directly to the ground, without the need to plow or till the land before doing so.
Unlike other forms of planting that involve soil removal, no-tillage focuses on keeping the topsoil of the planting area intact, which brings many benefits not only to the land but also to the environment.
Direct seeding, a good agricultural practice
Good agricultural practice is considered to be a cultivation approach or method that maximizes agricultural productivity while ensuring sustainability. That it also seeks to minimize negative impacts on the environment, human health and natural resources. The basis of good agricultural practices is in the balance between food production with the conservation of land, water and biodiversity.
One of the main benefits of no-tillage is soil conservation. Avoid tillage, minimize erosion and soil degradation. The topsoil acts as a natural barrier that protects the structure and fertility of the soil.
The environment and the producer, the main beneficiaries
In addition, direct seeding allows the biodiversity present in the land to be maintained thanks to the minimal intervention of the land. Also, it promotes greater water efficiency, this is especially important and valuable in regions with limited water resources or long dry seasons.
Virkar Group develops the best no-till machines
In line with good agricultural practices, Virkar Group maintains a firm commitment to sustainability. We develop modern, efficient and high quality direct seeding seeders. We are clear about the needs of the producer, and we understand that each field has its own characteristics, which is why our machines offer a high capacity for adaptation and versatility.
