Land preparation involves using many different pieces of farming equipment. We chose which piece of equipment we use based on the soil type of each field. This is a video of our cultivator in action. The primary function of the cultivator is to create an even seed bed by leveling the land. A secondary function of the cultivator is soil aeration which ensures oxygen and water reach the roots of the seed potatoes. The cultivator is the last pass on the land before we start planting the potatoes. Be sure to visit our photo gallery for additional pictures.
