Residue Management

Strong, fast and efficient: the Kelly Tillage System is the ultimate tool.

Shallow-working tillage technology can mulch and incorporate residues in one pass, saving time and energy. Kelly Disc Chains break stubble and split internodes to accelerate biological decomposition, leaving an insulating mulch layer and returning nutrients to the seedbed.

“It saves us a lot of time and that’s one thing that always seems to be in short supply when you’re trying to get a crop in… but it wouldn’t mean much without a good seedbed. The Kelly gives us the perfect seedbed and that’s where good yields start. It really is the perfect seedbed tool.”

“Anything that can save us time and allow us to get into the field quicker gets a lot of respect around here. The Kelly harrow works really well in our environment and it’s just so much faster — it’s one of the best tools I’ve ever had.”

“It’s not a deep tillage tool, but it airs out enough of the ground to make it plantable, and that’s what’s helped us over the last few years… We actually bought the cover crop seeder to go along with it, and it does a great job; you can spread any time, and you’re doing it all in one pass.”

“It [the Kelly] has changed a lot of the paradigm of how we grow some of our crops… The immediate benefit was less horsepower, less fuel. As we’ve gotten into it we’ve come to understand that the benefits are also soil related. We’ve covered lot of acres and the wear has been phenomenal.”

“I’d seen it in action so I knew it worked, but initially I wasn’t sure I could justify the expense. It’s pretty clear to me now that the Kelly saves us money in time and fuel and chemicals. We use it in so many different ways because it’s a very versatile tool and it does such a good job.”

Make stubble management simple.

KELLY Disc Chains break stubble and split internodes to accelerate biological decomposition, protecting the topsoil and returning nutrients to the seedbed.

Our shallow-working Disc Chain setup allows farmers to start preparing early in the season, saving costs on labour and fuel. By knocking down residue, the KELLY Tillage System leaves a protective mulch layer that insulates the seedbed against erosion, allowing for year-round ground cover.

Control weeds on your own terms.

Our unique Disc Chain technology uproots established weeds, leaving them on the surface where their viability degrades quickly.

The shallow scarifying action of the Disc Chains also stimulates weed seed germination. By forcing a uniform emergence of seasonal weeds prior to planting, a KELLY pass can massively improve the effectiveness of a one-time herbicide application, limiting the emergence of buried weed seeds throughout the growing season.

Start with a perfect seedbed.

A smooth seedbed will optimise planter performance, enable accurate seeding and lead to more consistent germination.

KELLY Tillage is at the forefront in sustainable seedbed preparation, creating conditions that keep soil moist and even in density. A level KELLY seedbed provides ideal seeding conditions through an ultra-shallow tillage pass, ensuring that each seed gets the best possible start.

Take charge of your cover crops.

The KELLY can be used for establishing and terminating cover crops. Mulching and incorporating the cover crop with a KELLY pass returns organic matter to the soil, providing a fertile environment for the cash crop.

The KELLY Model 4614 is specially designed to interface with our custom-built air seeding unit, the KELLY Seeder. All other models can be fitted with aftermarket seeders. This setup allows the KELLY Tillage System to complete cover crop seeding and seedbed preparation in a single operation, reducing the number of passes required.
