LAMMA 2005

Frost damage can make or break a carrot crop.

Consequently, those roots left in the ground over winter need to be well protected against the elements.

Fed a diet of big square bales, this monster straw bedder covers the crop with an insulating layer.

The side panels of the unit fold down to carry a total of seven bales and a conveyor carries them to spiral-toothed rotors which chop the straw.
