THE FRAGIPAN SOLUTION
Over 50 million acres of cultivatable land in the US is impacted by fragipans or similar restrictive soil layers that can significantly limit plant root growth and water drainage, thereby restricting agricultural productivity. Currently, fragipans are most commonly treated by deep sub-soiling which is expensive, has very limited effectiveness, and requires the use of heavy high-horsepower tillage equipment.
XPLO-AGRO's patent-pending technology overcomes these disadvantages by providing a novel new system for energetically breaching fragipan, hardpan, and other restrictive zones more efficiently and by delivering a more uniform, permanent, immediate, and effective fragipan treatment than conventional deep tillage.
XPLO-AGRO's more permanent and thorough treatment process delivers better crop productivity performance for less fuel, time, and expense. XPLO-AGRO's innovations will maximize agricultural performance by eliminating the fragipan’s barrier to root penetration and water drainage, with very minimal environmental impact and has the potential to increase agricultural productivity in these areas by 20%.
