Contour following strip till

Sumo or mzuri? Any good at following the ground? The rotation includes roots so ground is uneven. Currently plough/ deep tillage and power harrow. The power harrow has a front hopper so toying with the idea of a sumo toolbar DTS. This would let me put cover crops in without cultivation, and strip till after cover crops, from oats to wheat, from wheat to rye/ winter barley? Any thoughts? I feel we need to get the amount of time we spend on growing cereals down, although the ploughs and power harrow are bought and paid for? so dprcn is low along with work rate. Any comments.

That's what I was thinking. Anyone have experience of feeding from a lemken hopper, with 4 outlets and pipes, into 1 stack?

Mzuri here and follows some very uneven ground contours brilliantly. Very even emergence. Would of thought the split tank tank grain and fert model would suit you best up there., have drilled into pressed ploughing with ours and works well, no need to PH.
