The most popular Crop Rotation Machines from Weterings Machinery

  • How to start up and drive a Bio Chopper

    The Bio Chopper is great for shredding heavy vegetable crops. Whereas the Bio Chopper Compact has more than enough power in most cases, the Super Chopper Compact offers 40% more power for greenhouses with heavy tomato or bell pepper crops. This power translates into extra speed, which reduces the clearing time even further. In the video, you can see how to start up and drive a Bio Chopper:

Crop waste tipping containers

While shredding your crop is a major component of the crop rotation process, so too is the disposal of the shredded crop. A lot of waste is generated during crop rotation, so having plenty of available tipping waste containers is a necessity. To continuously shred crop it is important to have proper waste logistics in place. Considering every 100 m2 generates approximately 2 m3 of waste, we recommend having at least a 2,000 liter container in place for every such 100 m2 of crop. 

For such containers a forklift would be advisable, but this can also be done by shovel. A buffer container can also help to increase crop rotation speed and ensures a smoother logistic process.

  • Crop rotation machines | Weterings Machinery

    The Bio Chopper, an organic crop shredder, is the most popular product for speeding up crop rotation, because this crop rotation machine makes the biggest impact on time and labor savings. However, Weterings Machinery has several machines in its range to speed up the crop rotation. A lot of tasks need to be performed and for each process Weterings offers a suitable crop rotation machine. Think of a Bio Hopper, for taking out your crop or substrate without shredding. Or the Multiroller, this machine is designed to easily remove the remaining plastic from the rows. Click on the machines below to check out the technical specifications.

From ripening to removal

The process of crop rotation starts when the grower gives the plant the last round of water. After that moment, the plant will use up all its energy and will slowly ripen. Depending on the type of crop, the plant is either cut loose or sawn, and in most cases it is caught between the pipe rail supports with the aid of ground cover (or pulling cover). The covers serve as a means of transport that the shredding machine pulls towards the concrete path. The shredder rolls up the cover and the crop is processed in the machine by rotating knives into shreds, which are blown out through a pipe in waste containers. Depending on the contents, these waste containers should be emptied regularly, using forklift trucks/ shovels or other large transport trucks. Careful consideration must be given to the disposal of the shredded material, so that the shredder can continue to do its work at all times. For the remaining rockwool substrate slabs or Cocopeat mats, the same procedure applies as for the crop.
