Know-how videos

With our know-how videos, we want to share our knowledge of farming and farming methods to help you to optimise your farming operations.

At Väderstad, we not only manufacture agricultural machinery, but we also operate Väderstad farms in Sweden and Germany. The main aim of these farms is to drive the development of our machines and at the same time gain first-hand insight into different farming methods.

When to use different kind of wing share?

Choosing the correct wing share is crucial for improving work results, both in the soil and on the surface. The wing shares play a key role in achieving a thoroughly broken working horizon, especially when working at shallow to medium depths.

What point to choose according to weather?

The weather plays an important role in choosing the right point. Depending on weather conditions, the spade test can help decide whether to drive or wait. Light soils generally remain stable regardless of the weather, while heavy soils can be prepared for extreme weather conditions.

What point to choose according to soil type?

The soil type has a strong influence on the choice of point. The key function of a point is breaking up compactions and incorporating residues. In lighter soils, which tend to self-compact, the priority is to maximise root penetration. Heavier soils generally have a good structure, these are facing the risk of clod forming during cultivating.

How does the shin effect the cultivator result?

The shin is just as important as the point. While the point breaks up the soil, the shin is managing the soil flow. A high-quality shin throws the soil forward instead of upwards. That effectively doubles the mixing and crumbling effect.

How to select cultivator point in extreme years?

Access to water is often the most limiting factor for the crop development. Optimal point choice should be carefully considered for both extremely dry and extremely wet years. Factors such as crop root development and the amount of residues in the field, plays crucial roles while choosing the optimal point on a tine cultivator.

What is the purpose of tine cultivation?

The tine cultivator is an important tool in various farming systems. Its agronomic performance includes important tasks such as mixing and loosening the soil, removing yield-reducing compactions, creating fine soil, promoting root reconsolidation and minimising problems caused by slugs, mice and problematic insects.

What is ultra-shallow tillage?

Ultra-shallow tillage means full cultivation at a working depth of just 2-3cm. This contributes to field hygiene in order to create the best possible conditions for the following crop. This minimises the disturbance of the soil.

What does the ideal seedbed look like?

The seed's greatest potential is realised when it is planted in the soil. The seed needs moisture, an effective reconsolidation and the optimal temperature for a quick germination, such as a weather-resistant surface to prevent crusting.

Why is residue management important?

Well-handled residues can be an important asset for farm management. If they are handled in the wrong way, they can cause challenges for subsequent field operations as well as for the upcoming crop.

How to prepare a seedbed for a planter after deep cultivation?

A well-prepared seedbed is crucial for high-speed planters. Well prepared means uniform soil conditions with proper reconsolidation to create a stable seedbed and enough fine soil in the top horizon to close the seed furrow.

What is the benefit of variable seed rate?

The target is to plant the same number of plants of the same size throughout the field to achieve the highest yield and best plant quality and maximise the net profit. Germination can be affected by different soil types. A variable seed rate can help to compensate and minimise these effects.

Which seed drill concept to choose: The single disc coulter

When deciding between a single disc coulter and a double disc coulter for your seed drill, it is important to understand that it is not only the coulter itself that is important, also the consolidation around the coulter, the way of contour following, and the coulter pressure are equally important.

Why apply fertiliser when drilling or planting?

Many seed drills and planters are available as combi models, meaning you can apply the fertiliser in the same pass as the seed. The advantages include saving an operation when applying fertiliser, increasing the efficiency of the fertiliser, saving resources or achieving a higher yield. The placement of the fertiliser therefore plays a key role.

Why is seed placement so important and how can it be checked?

Seed placement is crucial to create the same conditions for every plant. This helps you to maximise the yield potential of your field. When we talk about the equal seed placement, we mean the same depth of the seeds, as well as consistent spacing within the seed row, and in-between rows.

Why plant at high speed?

High-speed planting offers several advantages in the field, as a larger area can be processed with the same machine. This not only offers the opportunity to increase net profit through faster job completions, which is key when timing is crucial, but it also ensures a more precise seed placement.
