Seedbed finishers are various combinations of field cultivators, spring-tooth harrows, cultipackers, coil-tine harrows, spike-tooth harrows, chain-link harrows, and rolling baskets to prepare the soil for planting. They vary in width from 7 to 40 feet and are designed for easy transporting from field to field. Combinations vary widely among and within manufacturers for creating the desired soil conditions. Field cultivators and spring-tooth harrows can be purchased separately.
Finishers are designed to match conservation tillage methods used with various crops, soils, and geographic locations. The finishers chop up crop residues, break up clods and surface crusts, control weeds, incorporate chemicals, and stir and firm the soil for planting. Selected components are suitable for rangeland seedbed preparation. Soil packers used in rangeland seeding are often constructed in local shops.
