Chisel plough helps make the soil more fertile as it enables the soil’s circulation of air and moisture. It allows for a better crop root development by ploughing deeper. It prepares the land by minimising soil disruption. The soil is loosened and crop residue can be eliminated. It breaks up the hardpan and minimises soil compaction. A chisel plough can enter impermeable layers of soil and helps improve infiltration. It allows for improved rainwater storage and enables the crops’ drought tolerance. This tool is useful in zero tillage planting.
