The weeds have died from the chiseling several weeks ago. Now we are trying to smooth the field and remove anymore weeds that escaped. This tillage tool is called a field cultivator.

After the field cultivator has been used you can see the soil surface is much smoother, but it still has some residue on the surface to help prevent erosion.
