Smaller discs are a dime a dozen, so Michael Bredeson and Ryan Schmid decided to convert one to a roller/crimper for cover crops. The research scientists at Ecdysis Foundation, along with their farmer advisor group, came up with the idea. It was a natural second step for the group after building an inter-row drill for seeding cover crops into established corn.
