Measurement technology tillage

Measurement technology for determining the forces and performance of soil cultivation equipment (cultivators, disc harrows) and their tools.

Measuring cultivator

  • Force situation on the tool (horizontal, vertical and side forces)
  • Comparison of different tool variants and wear conditions
  • Compensation of soil inhomogeneities using reference tools

Linear Motion Scanner and 3D-Camera

  • Surface roughness before and after tillage, calculation of roughness indices
  • Actual working depth and cultivated soil volume
  • Change in pore volume

SoilCover (© Josephinum Research

  • Image analytical determination of the land cover
  • Classification into living biomass, dead biomass, earth and stones

Determination of dry density, water content and pore volume
