Cereals 2021: Izona shows low-disturbance subsoiler

After stealing the limelight with its direct-drill launch at Groundswell, Izona hit the Cereals showground with a low-disturbance subsoiler designed to crack compacted ground without causing too much disruption.

It is available with eight legs across 4m or 12 legs in 6m format, spaced at 500mm centres. There is a 750mm gap between the two staggered rows to maintain trash flow when working through long stubble or cover crops.

A spring-loaded, pivoting disc in front of each of the 15mm-wide hardened steel legs helps slice through the ground to keep soil movement to a minimum.

However, those after a bit more disturbance can opt for 115mm or 135mm wings as an alternative to the narrow 55mm points. A 600mm V-profile press roller follows the legs to consolidate the surface. 

The subsoiler folds to a 2.7m transport width and comes with a lighting bar for road travel.
