Image Number D1216-4

Crimping roller used for elevated beds (for one bed and two furrows) with a custom-designed crimping bar to reach both furrows and a row top. The soybean cover crop (chosen for its ability to fix nitrogen into the soil and form a dense crop canopy) is being rolled and crimped to kill it, forming a mat of dead biomass into which growers can plant a cash crop.
