WHAT IS LASER LAND LEVELLING?
Why precise Land Levelling fields leads to inefficient use of irrigation water and
is using Laser Based Levelling Systems also delays tillage and crop establishment options.
Fields that are not levelled have uneven crop stands,

Laser levelling maintains the grade by automatically
performing the cutting and levelling operations. Both
level grade and slope grade (one way or two ways)
can be achieved with the help of this precise system.
