Superior Residue Management

XDC (Xtreme DeComposition) Rolls

The North Star* XDC Rolls are our newest chopping residue management rolls. They are an upgrade to our standard North Star* knife rolls which have been in the Geringhoff product line since 2001. The North Star* XDC Rolls crimp, slice, and dice corn residue into 2.5”-3.5” pieces and places them around the stubble causing rapid decomposition of both the residue and stubble.
