Pasture Improvement Using A Tractor Aerator

Improving soil is the foundation for any successful farm management, and aeration is vital for soil health. Tines passing through the soil not only relieve compaction but also create channels for air and water to penetrate into the soil, increasing aerobic bacteria growth without these bacteria many nutrients are unavailable to the plants.  Aeration also improves your soil’s water holding capacity. By breaking the surface crust and creating deep channels it increases your soil’s ability to absorb moisture. This process of relieving compaction helps develop an efficient deep root system that helps your plants become more drought resistant. 

Luckily, Farmtech offers five different aerators that cater to your specific farming needs. 

The FarmTech GH Series and SGH Series relieves soil compaction without damaging the grass you already have and prevents rain runoff on your paddocks. The Rain you have been praying for does you no good if it runs off into the government’s creek!
