Whether it’s residue management, weed control, moisture incorporation or creating that perfect seedbed prior to planting, the unique diamond shaped Kelly Tillage System offers a wide array of ground engaging disc chains to satisfy your year-round light tillage requirements. The Kelly Tillage System is the ultimate tool for seedbed preparation without the high costs of traditional tillage methods. With a well-earned reputation for strength and reliability, this is a tool that was developed by farmers, for farmers.
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.”
“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.
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.
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.
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 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.
