Why is Fallow Master & Blade Plow a Tough Act to Follow?

Erosion Control

Wheat-fallow rotation methods of dryland farming remain the dominant cropping systems in many arid and semi-arid regions and conventional tillage practices leave the soil vulnerable to erosion.  Orthman fallow tillage tools are an effective tillage system, and help retain higher levels of surface residue and soil structure during the fallow period to limit erosion.

Water Retention

Orthman’s fallow tillage tools create the ideal conditions to maximize soil moisture retention. Residue maintenance on the soil surface helps trap snow, absorb raindrop impact, slow runoff and minimize evaporation, and also helps control weeds at critical times in the production cycle.

Fallow Master & Blade Plow

The Fallow Master is designed to give you high-efficiency tillage in a wide range of soil conditions by cutting through weeds and cover crops while leaving the majority of residue exposed for maximum water storage efficiency.  The Blade Plow conservation tillage machine features large overlapping hard-faced sweeps, high-strength steel standards and durable cutting coulters for a cost-effective weed control system in fallow ground.

Revolutionize Your Tillage

The Fallow Master is designed to give you high-efficiency tillage in a wide range of soil conditions by cutting through weeds and cover crops while leaving the majority of residue exposed for maximum water storage efficiency. The Fallow Master features two ranks of overlapping hard-faced sweeps and flexible frame sections for effective weed control and blanket tillage.

Blade Plow

Cut through residue for effective weed control and uniform tillage

Orthman’s Blade Plow conservation tillage machine features large overlapping hard-faced sweeps, high-strength steel standards and durable cutting coulters to reduce residue hairpinning. With working widths from a maneuverable 33’ to a commanding 55’, the Blade Plow is a cost-effective option for killing weeds in fallow ground or prior to planting.
