JBM's Mulcher a new option to destroy weeds, cover crops


The use of herbicides on-farm is a hot topic right now — especially when we’re talking glyphosate.

At Agritechnica in Hannover, Germany, RealAgriculture’s Shaun Haney caught up with Irene Kramer of JBM, to talk about the JBM Mulcher, a unit designed to help reduce the use of herbicides.

“The machine mixes the plants and two to three centimetres of the soil together, along with some air, to create a mixed bed, leaving the optimal organic matter,” explains Kramer.

The machine can also be used to terminate cover crops, and is available in 150 cm to 3 meters in size.
