A Little Bit of March Madness

By K-Line Ag
Published on

Holding Product Demo Days is a great way to introduce a little March Madness (the good sort)!

We held two demo days in March 2019, together with Cowra, Forbes and West Wyalong Machinery Centres. These days offered a great chance for local (and not-so local) farmers to view ripping and tillage demonstrations, be among the first to get a glimpse of new K-Line Ag products, and check out a range of New Holland tractors. Its a great opportunity to see our products working in real conditions in the paddock, rather than just displayed in a showroom. Add that to a free lunch, prize giveaways and the opportunity to meet the teams from CMC, FMC, WWMC and K-Line Ag in person… it’s not much wonder these days were a rounding success!

Cowra Demo Day: March 19

Cowra’s Product Demo Day on March 19 was a Ripper of a day! A very welcome few mm of rain the night before settled the dust, which made the demos much more pleasant for onlookers. We had a great turnout of local farmers and others who had travelled from further afield.

Throughout the day we ran a number of product demonstrations: a Speedtiller Powerflex®, 7-tyne MaxxRipper®, and our ‘soon-to-be-released’ SpeedChisel. Watch for this exciting new development to be launched later this year – sign up to our eNews to make sure you get first dibs!

3 lucky attendees came up trumps with our demo day prize draw. Congratulations to Lawrence Parrish of Canowindra, Gary Amos of Cowra, and Tim Johnstone of Woodstock!

West Wyalong Demo Day: March 22

A few days later, the teams headed out to West Wyalong, ready to roll again. It was great to meet the team at West Wyalong Machinery Centre, the newest dealership on board with Forbes Machinery Centre Group. Being a relatively new area for K-Line Ag equipment, this was an excellent opportunity to show our machinery to local farmers and agronomists on their own turf.

The day was off to a great start as the teams and early-bird farmers watched a beautiful storm roll in, bringing with it the desperately needed rain. The dark clouds and the smell of rain put a grin on everyone’s faces… and made for some hasty team work saving the tents from blowing away (check it out below)!

 

 

Once the storm had passed, we got on with the product demos. The ground was incredibly hard; it had been flooded a few years ago and then had cattle on it, making for severely tight compacted ground: a great opportunity to demonstrate what K-Line Ag machines are really made of. There’s a reason we build them tough, and build them to work in tough Australian conditions! We ran the MaxxRipper® first to loosen up the compacted ground, and then demonstrated the ability of the Speedtiller Powerflex® to create a beautiful level seedbed.

Congratulations to the lucky winners of the West Wyalong product demo prize draw: Peter Morton of Stockinbingal, and Andrew Forsyth of West Wyalong!

Fab Feedback

For those that haven’t been to one of these field days, they are a must-do. There’s no obligation, you come and you watch and you can have a ride in the tractor, you can walk around the different machinery. And you can also talk to other farmers that have these machines, and get their opinion not just K-Line’s opinion which is really important.

Case Study: Soil Solutions & Deep Tillage Equipment at Young NSW

By K-Line Ag
Published on

Getting your soil right is one of the most important tasks for any farmer, and ‘plough pans’ of compacted, dry soil are regularly encountered across the often drought-stricken Australian continent.

David McMillan knows this all too well. McMillan’s property in Young, New South Wales is a mixed operation with stud cattle and lambs, as well as various grain crops. Dry, compacted soil affected by decades of ploughing and planting needs to be carefully worked to allow moisture back in, which in turn allows roots to grow deeper.

View them in Action!...

Across his property, McMillan has been using deep tillage equipment; the K-Line Ag Speedtiller in combination with the heavy duty MaxxRipper® ground-breaking tool, to get his soil to the right consistency and balance. Recently, K-Line used his property for a demo day of the two products.

Flower Power: MaxxRipper Breaks New Ground in Sunflower Crop!

By K-Line Ag
Published on

Growing Sunflowers as far south as Parkes NSW is a tall order. A sunflower crop is traditionally considered difficult to grow in southern NSW districts, mainly due to low summer rainfall. NSW DPI recommends planting sunflowers into 80-100cm of wet soil to minimise the risk of crop failure*.

The K-Line Ag MaxxRipper has helped Parkes district farmers achieve results this year. Deep ripping paddocks in preparation for seeding this Sunflower crop enabled access to subsoil moisture, therefore playing an important role in yielding the crop of sunflowers shown below.

We ran trials of deep ripping verses no deep ripping prior to seeding this Sunflower crop, and the image below clearly shows these results:

Why not bring some sunshine into your life…
Ensure your crops have the ability to tap into moisture resources deep down!

The Proof is in the Pudding: MaxxRipper® Trials

By K-Line Ag
Published on

The K-Line Ag MaxxRipper® is coming into its own, as customers are gathering indisputable evidence of the benefits of strategic deep ripping. Although a lot of areas haven’t shown the results expected due to poor weather conditions, results like the MaxxRipper trials below can’t be argued with!

MaxxRipper® Trials: Difference Between Deep Ripping & Not!

Pictured here are the results of farm contractor Tim Davies’ canola crops in Temora NSW. Tim conducted a test on these two paddocks side by side, deep ripping one and leaving the other. The paddock in the foreground of this photo was ripped, and the other side of the fence (the side showing more flower) was left un-ripped.

MaxxRipper trial results in Canola crop, Temora NSW

In the image below, the plant on the left was from the un-ripped paddock. Comparatively, the plant in the middle is from the paddock he had ripped. The non-ripped canola was sown 8 days earlier, illustrating the growth spurt that deep ripping affords.

Canola plant root development from a deep ripped paddock vs un-ripped paddock

Ripped vs Un-Ripped

Notice the horizontal roots of the smaller plant on the left, which was taken from the un-ripped paddock. J-rooting is caused when plant roots come in contact with hard pans which they struggle to break through, which means they can’t access the nutrients further down in the soil profile.
