Creating a viable seedbed is crucial to ensuring your crops or vegetation germinate and mature into healthy plants. Early seed bedding eliminates weeds and their seeds so that only the vegetation you desire takes root and grows on your land. A proper seed bed reduces the reliance on chemical weed applications later in the season, so your soil is free of harmful chemicals. Arnold’s Custom Seeding maintains a fleet of custom-designed-and-built equipment to provide efficient and effective seed bedding services.
Arnold’s Custom Seeding begins our seedbed preparation process by removing debris from your land that will hinder the germination and sprouting of seeds, such as rocks, insect eggs and disease. If necessary, we will level your land to promote even drainage of irrigation or rain. In situations where your land has become compacted, we will use specialized equipment to break it up and turn it into loose soil, which allows for air and water to enter the seedbed.
Once we have finished the landform manipulation process of preparing your seedbeds, we will move on to soil improvement. This process involves adding soil amendments to improve the structure and texture of the soil, so that the seeds can access the soil nutrients better. If your soil is lacking in any specific nutrients, we will apply fertilizers to the seedbed based on which nutrients are lacking. By improving your soil at the seedbed, your vegetation will have a better chance of taking root and flourishing.
