The probability of a glyphosate ban in many countries, along with current fuel prices, will have many farmers questioning their crop establishment approach. The former is the main reason why there is a plethora of ultra-shallow cultivators hitting the market, with the Lemken solution being the Koralin, which uses its full working width to encourage weed seeds to germinate and uproot any growing plants.
