The PH Outdoors Crimper Roller is the perfect tool for wildlife managers wanting to mechanical kill or terminate cover crops without the use of expensive chemicals. Using this crimper will preserve soil moisture, prevent weed growth and the terminated cover crop adds a layer of organic, slow release fertilizer at the surface of the soil where new crops can absorb the nutrients.
The PH Outdoors 4′ Crimper Roller is a tow-behind unit. Using the weight of the machine, it rolls over the cover crop, pressing it down, while the fins will crimp the cover crop plant in multiple places. This effectively cuts off the circulatory system of the plant, causing it to die. The PH Outdoors Crimper also lays the cover crop down flat on the ground, acting as a ‘weed protection mat’ and preventing sunlight from drying the soil.
