BC 1000 series shredders with working widths from 2.8 to 6.5 m are the ideal choice for cereal farms, machinery cooperatives and contractors. They are specially designed for intensive jobs with tractors between 150 and 400 hp. Shredding crop residues after harvest is essential for many reasons. A lot of crops such as wheat, durum wheat, soft winter wheat, triticale, oats, rye, maize and sorghum can be contaminated by mycotoxins. Shredding is also a way to destroy the habitat favourable to pest reproduction and diseases between two crops. Lastly, by shredding your residues you ensure that germination regularity and development of the following crop is not affected by non-decomposed straw. Shredding also provides an ecological alternative to destroying cover crops and intermediate crops as opposed to using crop-protection products.
