The Pegasus Rapid Plow Down System: A New Concept in Cotton Tillage

Gary W. Thacker and Wayne E. Coates


This new concept in tillage is to open a deep, temporary slot next to the cotton row and to insert the stalks and/or roots into the slot before the soil falls back in. The Pegasus Rapid Plow Down System is a relatively simple implement which offers good residue burial and reliability. Our limited field test data indicate that this invention requires less energy and field work time than conventional tillage systems.
