How to reduce soil compaction after harvesting?

How can I be sure that my agricultural tyres are always at the right pressure?

A good agricultural tyre is the best guarantee of sprayer stability

The width and weight of the boom creates a problem of load transfer, significant instability linked to unlevel terrain, and therefore imprecision in the application of inputs.

The solution is choosing the right tyres for the whole combination vehicle, tractor and sprayer. This is definitely the most important point for boom stability.

What is the right load distribution for my tractor tyres?

Good distribution of weight on your tractor wheels is essential for your safety and the stability of your machinery, but also for good motricity, and to protect your equipment and your soil.

The weight carried by your tyres is directly linked to the quantity of air contained in each of them, the more air in the tyre, the easier it is for them to carry a heavy load. There are two means of...
