Ratoon Manager is a tractor drawn implement mounted on a 3 point linkage driven by the PTO. This is a combination of Stubble Shaving, Off-baring and Harrowing. If required, fertilizer & pesticide applicator can also be provided as an optional. Ratoon Manager will be the best if the field preparation ( Ridges and Furrow ) is done with tractor and suitable for different row spacing. It shaves the stubbles evenly and the Off-baring helps to trim the roots. Harrowing promotes better aeration and water penetration to rejuvenate and induce the growth of the sugarcane.
