A chisel plough, also known as a chisel plow or subsoiler, is an agricultural implement used for deep tillage and soil breaking in farming. It is primarily designed to alleviate soil compaction, improve soil structure, and enhance root penetration by breaking up hardpan layers deep within the soil profile.

A chisel plough, also known as a chisel plow or subsoiler, is an agricultural implement used for deep tillage and soil breaking in farming. It is primarily designed to alleviate soil compaction, improve soil structure, and enhance root penetration by breaking up hardpan layers deep within the soil profile. Here’s how a chisel plough typically works:

Chisel Shanks: The central component of a chisel plough is its shanks, which are long, sturdy, and usually pointed or chisel-shaped metal bars. These shanks are mounted on a heavy frame and are spaced apart to cover the desired working width.

Mounting and Adjustment: Chisel ploughs can be attached to a tractor or other suitable towing vehicle. Operators can adjust the depth and spacing of the shanks to suit the specific soil conditions and tillage goals.

Field Operation: As the tractor moves forward, the chisel shanks penetrate the soil to a significant depth, often reaching well below the typical plowing depth of other implements. The shanks are designed to break through compacted layers, hardpans, or subsurface obstacles.

Breaking Compaction: The chisel shanks create fractures or fissures in the compacted soil layers, effectively breaking up hardpan and allowing for improved water infiltration and root penetration.

Minimal Surface Disturbance: Chisel ploughs typically disturb the soil only at the depth of the shanks, leaving the surface relatively undisturbed compared to traditional plowing. This can help prevent erosion and protect soil structure.

Crop Residue Management: Some chisel ploughs may incorporate features to manage crop residues by cutting and mixing them into the soil.

Minimal Soil Inversion: Unlike moldboard plows that invert the soil, chisel ploughs maintain the soil’s natural layering, which can be beneficial for preserving beneficial microorganisms and organic matter.
