Piket Implements Support No Tillage Farming Methods

It is not just about the harvest and germination of seed any more. It is about sustainable farming too! When using the no tillage (No Till) planting method or by planting cover crop, you allow old plant rests to form natural compost/mulch, adding to the soil's quality and keeping moisture in the soil, protecting plant roots against the extreme weather conditions and reducing soil erosion. “No till” planting is described as: plant into plant residue.
