Good land preparation is critical for maximum moisture retention, precision planting, fast uniform seed germination and emergence and effective weed and disease control. The first tillage should take place six weeks before planting using a disc plough. This tillage involves deep turning of the soil 20-30 cm in depth (8-12″) to completely bury weed seed and incorporate crop residues. The second tillage operation is conducted using a spike harrow in order to create a suitable seedbed that is loose, smooth and level. On virgin soils, clearing and leveling is necessary. However, heavy equipment is not recommended for leveling since these contribute to soil compaction.
