In this video, witness a JD 8245R pulling a disc ripper primary tillage tool.  Deep tilling is a strategy designed to remove compaction from the soil.  Compacted soils prevent healthy root growth and nutrient uptake.  On this AGinvest farm, soils have been compacted from the act of installing drainage tile earlier in the year.  The key to this operation is to complete the task of deep tilling when the soil is dry.
