The Farmtech SGH Series Aervator involves perforating the soil with slots to relieve compaction and allow water, air and nutrients to penetrate down to the grassroots. New science has shown that aeration is vital to soil health. Aeration supports the living layer of your soil by creating channels for air and water to feed the aerobic bacteria that live below the surface of the soil. Through aeration air is allowed to penetrate the first 100 cm of the soil to support aerobic bacteria growth. Aerobic microbes need air to properly stabilize soil PH and convert organic matter to plant available nutrients. This microbial activity has been found to increase the soils water holding capacity.
Channel and cracks in the soil profile allow rain and irrigation to be easily absorbed by your soil where it’s needed instead of running off into the creek. Aeration breaks surface crust and creates deep channels and cracks that drastically increase your soils ability to absorb moisture. This process helps develop vigorous deep root systems helping your plants become more drought resistant. Deep rooted plants also have far greater uptake of minerals and trace elements, ultimately resulting in healthier livestock.
The SGH Series Aervator is similar to the GH Series Aervator in the sense that this machine relieves soil compaction without damaging the grass you already have and preventing rain runoff on your paddocks. Proudly manufactured in Australia, the SGH series Aervator is the compact version of a GH Series focusing on smaller horsepower tractors with no compromise in heavy duty construction.
The SGH Series features a heavy duty steel frame made of quality Australian steel, hot dipped galvanised finish, large rotor bearings, a single gang system, with aeration only settings.
