A Better Seedbed For A Better Bottom Line

Welcome To The Home Of The Kelly Tillage System

Whether it’s Maize borer control, 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 and spiked chains to satisfy your year-round light tillage requirements. The Kelly Tillage System is the ultimate management 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.

Save costs with our approach to stubble management

Designed to handle the most challenging of residue, our innovative disc chains chop and split residue to speed up decomposition, leaving a layer of top soil that assists with residue breakdown.

Our aggressive disc chain set up means you can start preparing early in the season, saving costs on labour and fuel. The increase in organic matter leads to improved soil structure and integrity. Add to this the dramatic increase in productivity (expect 6.75 ha/hr, 10 ha/hr and 13.5 ha/hr for the 6m, 9m and 12m machines respectively. This will depend on field size and field conditions, these numbers were calculated using 14 kms/hr and field efficiency of 80%Ha/hr. You will soon see why the Kelly Diamond Harrow is the ideal machine for your farm. Boasting fuel efficiencies ranging from 2.5 – 3.5 l/ha, depending on machine size, tractor size and field conditions.

Unique and cost effective weed control

The range of Kelly discs, particularly the more aggressive new CL2 discs, are achieving even better results than our already popular CL1 discs when it comes to weed control and paddock management.

While each paddock and farm have differing conditions, the significantly reduced operating costs of using a Kelly diamond Harrow in a field, combined with the resultant savings in herbicides, has proven to be another successful step in the fight against weeds and herbicides resistance.

Make a smooth and perfect seedbed

A smooth seedbed minimises damage to your planting equipment, enables accurate seeding and saves on seed costs.

Kelly Engineering is at the forefront in sustainable seedbed preparation, creating conditions that keep soil moist and even in density. Our smooth seedbeds provide ideal seeding conditions, which lead to consistent seed to soil contact resulting in more uniform germination, even crop establishment and early plant and root development.

Maize Borer Control

Control of grassy weeds is important to keep stalk borer problems from increasing year to year.

Using the Kelly Diamond Harrow to split, condition and mix residue with soil, exposing corn borer larvae that would normally survive over the winter months. Larvae are also exposed to predators such as birds and insects.
