The 5000 Stalk Devastator works by using rollers to crush corn stalks as it rolls through the field, reducing stubble damage to the tires, wires and hydraulic hoses on planters, combines, trucks and tractors, while preserving enough ground cover to ensure growers still get the erosion-prevention benefits associated with residue. When the crushed stalks are knocked over, they have more contact with the soil than when left standing, allowing the plant tissue to break down faster.
