Time to show us what you've got! Deep ripping with a 10 shank Zone-Builder Subsoiler by Unverferth. We are excited to see the results of this in the 2021 crop. And with the new Optitrac tires by Titan Tires we expect greatly improved traction.
And just when we thought we had it all figured out our fertilizer showed up with a random load of gravel!

  • U guys need to let those tires down a little further

  • Just realized in the first part of the vid how similar your actual farm looks to the one in fs19. That’s crazy.

  • Most people sweeten the soil with lime, but if you have an alkaline based soil that keeps getting worse, would it help to mix in some acidic soils? We have a lot of pine and spruce up here in NS, CA and the soil is black with all the needles and matter that mixes into the soil. Might help, but should ask. Pine bark mulch is pretty cheap up here.

  • How deep you ripping? How often do the ripper points need resurfaced or replaced ? Alkali not good for growing. Thank you for old memories.

    • This is our first time at doing ripping. Started at 12" but the weather turned to winter so not as much trial happened.

      Robert WelkerRobert WelkerDay ago
  • When I RIP it usually gets us around 6 to 10 bu gain on corn in s/w iowa and the roots go much deeper which gives it better standabillity in wind.

  • Don't deep rip ground that has no growth on it. Your (small) soil particles will just get washed down your freshly formed cracks and form a new hardpan - only deeper. You need soil biology to stabilize the soil immediately. Don't waste your time and fuel.

  • In England, the best crop to plant after subsoiling is canola.

  • Back of Feb 22, on the detoured road trip from Cali to Las Vegas, Leg arms and Robert stopped to see the world's second largest tractor. Robert explained carefully that in Cali they had to deep rip the soil to break up the hard pan that develops because of the lack of the freeze/thaw you have at your farm. Now Nick says that isn't true. What's the real story here?

    fortrastosfortrastos7 days ago
    • @Robert Welker Thanks for the little hydrology/geology lesson. I needed that.

      fortrastosfortrastosDay ago
    • There is relief of shallow compaction by the freeze/thaw here. But if the soil profile is dry and frost doesn't penetrate deep enough I'm seeing more compaction. In California they use so much irrigation water it seals the ancient lake soils by evaporating the salts to the surface.

      Robert WelkerRobert WelkerDay ago
  • Thats a cute lil ripper ... seen a vid here on youtube where they dig 2m deep.. but they needed 3 dozers to pull it and it only had 1 blade since it dug that deep xD. You could almost pull the thing with the big bud tho since those dozers had 650 HP combined.. might slip like bambi on ice tho >.>.

  • @welker farms looks like to me you could come up with a filter water drop to drain the water slow and not lose product, if you had a filter over the drop hole and maybe some wet dry over that it will drain.somthing like a greese filler in reverse

    earnest 1212earnest 12127 days ago
  • Have you talked to a raw materials company about gathering up the salt laden ground and having it moved someplace else? It must be a low quality salt content if you couldn't get someone to take it off your hands for reprocessing, used as clean fill for a site that won't care about salt, or whatever other uses they might have for it.

  • you can rinse out your fertilizer auger if you mix up some alkaline water. It neutralizes the acidic fertilizer and might save some auger life. Plus you have the alkaline on the farm. Just a thought

    Aaron LaumannAaron Laumann9 days ago
    • Just curious around here SE MN the general rule is run half of what the shank spacing is/or 2 inches below the compaction layer. That's us though (heavy clay soils underneath the top soil
