Remlinger Manufacturing offers the Ninja Cover Crop Crimper for a simple and effective cover crop management tool. With increased demand for organic foods and a decrease in herbicide supplies, the need for a dependable cover crop crimper has never been greater. While working with no-till and organic farmers in search of a solution to manage cover crops without tillage or the use of chemicals, the Ninja was born.
Available in a variety of sizes and configurations, the Ninja Roller Crimper features 3/8” thick chevron pattern blades for smooth rolling and heavier bearings than competitors. Its chevron blades roll smooth and lay residue down to the ground before crimping. The laid down residue will form a weed suppressing matte, conserve soil moisture, and increase organic matter.
This roller crimper is commonly used to terminate cereal rye, hairy vetch, triticale, and more.
