- Addition of various fertilizers and their uniform mixing with soil;
- Watering the beds with the help of a pump;

When choosing a cultivator for work on the plot, it is necessary to take into account the area of cultivated land, the weight and power of the equipment itself, along with the basic functions declared by the motorized equipment manufacturer.
