I used to have an eleven shank Glencoe "soil saver". It had three gangs of discs in front. They were a constant hassle. Bearings going bad, discs breaking. I mowed my corn stalks, and yet with the advent of Bt corn, I could still wad up a ball of stalks occasionally. So I shopped for a newer style disc/chisel with three rows of teeth instead of two. I found a nine shank Unverferth "penetrator". It has five little disc gangs mounted on swivels, spring loaded, and on a bar so they can be controlled hydraulically from the tractor seat. Very nice. BUT! Here's the interesting part. I got a newer combine. It has "knife rolls". It obliterates anything that goes down through the rolls! I still mow the remaining stubble. But what I finally realized was the old four row combine was running down the outer two rows, so no matter what I did, I had plenty of full length stalks laying out there flat on the ground. Now the six row head, as I said, destroys all the stalks. I'm sure I could go back to the Glencoe, with all the chisels mounted on two rows. And I can raise the disc gang on the Unverferth and it makes no difference! So- it all depends- on lots of variables!
