Adopt These Practices to Maximize Your Crop Yield!

Weed Suppression

By uprooting and exposing weed seeds to sunlight, the weed population can be reduced leading to less competition for nutrients, water, and sunlight in the subsequent crop.

Soil Aeration

Breaking up compacted soil layers through plowing improves soil aeration, allowing roots to penetrate deeper. It enhances microbial activity, promoting nutrient cycling and soil health.

Moisture Conservation

Plowing during summer helps to create a mulch layer on the soil surface, reducing moisture loss through evaporation. It conserves water for plant uptake during dry periods.

Pest and Disease Management

Summer plowing can disrupt the life cycles of pests and pathogens, reducing their populations and lowering the risk of infestation in subsequent crops.

Improved Seedbed Preparation

By breaking up soil clods and leveling the field, summer plowing creates an ideal seedbed for planting. It ensures good seed-to-soil contact and optimal germination rates.

Nutrient Recycling

Include crop residues into the soil through plowing to decompose organic matter and release nutrients back into the soil. This enriches soil fertility and reduces the need for external fertilizers.


These benefits collectively contribute to higher crop yields, improved soil health, and more sustainable agricultural practices.
