Adam Souder, a territory manager for Orthman Manufacturing, talks about the new features of the XD 1tRIPr precision strip-till machine. We caught up with Adam at the 2013 Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Illinois.

The Orthman 1tRIPr preplant tillage tool combines proven strip-till soil management, precision nutrient placement, and seedbed preparation in a single field pass to provide unprecedented field efficiency. The 1tRIPr name is derived from combining multiple operations to meet preplant objectives while conserving moisture, soil, time, and money in one trip.

The 1tRIPr can be utilized as a stand-alone machine or in unison with the Orthman Combo Caddy or a planter attachment package to truly combine multiple operations and maximize one pass productivity. The 1tRIPr can tackle various field conditions such as: wheat stubble, cover crop, and standing corn stalks while providing a clean, level, and ideally suited seedbed each and every time.
