As with most things in life, the key to a successful harvest is good preparation. It’s important to manage the soil profile so as to eliminate compaction as far as possible and to maximise the efficient uptake of moisture and nutrients by root systems. The preparation of a fine, level, weatherproof seedbed is also crucial. Whether you operate a conventional tillage or reduced tillage regime, the Great Plains Simba range offers a wide variety of innovative soil loosening, cultivation and consolidation equipment to suit different soil types and operating practices including proven one-pass systems designed to save you time and money.

The accuracy and dependability of the planter is critical to the success of your operation. The planter must be able to precisely place the seed in widely varying residue and soil types, often across hundreds of acres in a single day. Here too, consistency in achieving the optimum seed spacing and seed depth as well as good seed-to-soil contact without sidewall compaction are essential ingredients in maximizing your yields. Every Great Plains Yield-Pro® Planter incorporates all of the key features that enable you to produce outstanding yields season-after-season.
Harvest doesn’t start when you enter the field with your combine. Harvest starts when it leaves! Great Plains makes all the quality tillage, seeding and planting equipment you need to get your harvest off to the best possible start and ultimately to maximise your yields.
