Title : Impact of the cultivators prongs elasticity on the quality and efficiency of clay soils scarification
Key words : soil, treatment, cultivator, elasticity of a loosening quality
Summary :

Results of the research on the effect of the cultivator tines elasticity on the value of the quality indices and efficiency of soil loosening at four levels of depth and the speed of cutting were presented. Measurements of the surface area of the cross-section of the loosening soil and the cutting resistance necessary for determination of indices were carried out in the field conditions in the sandy clay and loamy clay at the respective moistures 11.2 and 15.6%. It was found out that the increase of the elasticity index value results in the parabolic course of indices of loosening quality and efficiency, regardless of the soil type and depth and speed of cutting. Indices of tines elasticity, at which the highest quality and efficiency of loosening is obtained, decrease with power series along with the increase of speed and depth of cutting, regardless the soil type.
