Enhance . Improve . Preserve
Susterre is pioneering the use of ultra-high pressure fluid jet technology for row crop planting and seeding applications.
Susterre’s products enhance agriculture by lowering the cost of farming, improving the health of the soil, and preserving the earth’s natural resources.
Susterre will soon release its flagship product focused on improving no-till farming, helping enable conservation tillage to deliver its promised benefits.
No-till farming is an agricultural technique for growing crops without disturbing the soil through tillage. Leaving crop residue on the soil benefits farmers, the soil, and the earth by:
- reducing erosion from wind and water
- decreasing water evaporation
- preserving carbon in the soil rather than releasing it to the atmosphere
- reducing compaction of the soil
- allowing fewer passes across the field.
However, issues with no-till technology reduce the benefits of no-till farming, limiting adoption of this valuable process:
- No-till planters are quite expensive
- significant downward force to cut through residue compacts the soil below the cut
- crop residue is pushed into clumps, hindering the growth of the new crop
- crop residue is pinned into the cut, causing issues with rotting
- cutting parts on a no-till planter wear out quickly, increasing cost.
Susterre’s new technology will enable conservation tillage to realize its full potential by:
- creating agronomic and cost benefits for farmers currently practicing no-till farming, directly mitigating the current issues associated with no-till farming
- providing a lower-cost entry possibility for farmers that have not adopted no-till practices.
