How to Use an Agriculture Cultivator in Farming

by Shruti Sharma Content Writer at Fieldking

If you are a farmer and wish to turn a piece of virgin land into a farm, the first step is to prepare the soil. Various manual tools and mechanical equipment such as ploughs, tillers, and cultivators are now employed to prepare the ground before planting seeds. Some of these are also used to keep soil in place after planting seeds or in your little kitchen garden. Cultivators are examples of agricultural machinery that can be used to convert unused land into a productive farm.


Cultivators allow you to dig up soil even in difficult and trashy places full of bumps and clods. A heavy-duty cultivator is capable of the most difficult ploughing duties and can loosen and aerate your farm's soil to a depth of nine inches. It enables you to rapidly and efficiently prepare a seedbed. When you consider the cultivator price, it is a very cost-effective piece of machinery when compared to other tillage equipment. You can select a cultivator based on your farm's soil type and size. For your tiny garden at home, you can use a small engine-powered or hand-powered cultivator or tiller.


Though heavy-duty cultivators are employed as attachments to tractors driven behind them, they are also referred to as tractor cultivators. You can attach cultivators to small or large tractors depending on their size. These cultivators are employed for a variety of tasks such as weed management, digging up previous crop leftovers with shallow roots, and breaking up hard soil, among others.
