The patented Dammer Diker® process is simple but the effect is dramatic. It greatly improves each plant’s access to moisture, nutrients, temperature, and air.
An inter-row ripper opens up the soil, and a multi-spoke “spider” implants the tillage reservoirs. The spiders are mounted on a common shaft in gangs of at least three spiders, with each spider being timed so that the gang rolls smoothly through the opened soil, alternately implanting the tillage reservoirs. Since these reservoirs are implanted below the soil surface, they are easier to harvest over and last longer than reservoirs formed by any other method.
