Spring Aeration: Why should I aerate my land?
After a wet, wet winter and everything being soggy and slippery, spring has arrived with dry wind and warm weather. Before it dries out too much more get the moisture down into your soil to continue and nurture good growth for a booming summer.
Why should I aerate my land?
• Improve Soil nutrients
A good balance of soil nutrients gives your pasture or crops the best conditions for optimal growth. This also translates into animal health, the better fed they are the better returns you reap.
• Reduce Soil compaction
Soil compaction restricts growth and decreases the resilience of your grass or crops. It also causes puddles or pugging. Aeration loosens the compaction and let oxygen down into the roots.
• Build better crop resilience in dry and warm months
If your pasture or crops have deeper stronger roots from aeration they will retain moisture a lot better and survive for a lot longer without as much water
• Better fertilizer response means less expensive fertilizer and better bang for your buck
Fertilizer is expensive, the better growth response you get from it the more gains you can make. Aeration opens up the root zone allowing the fertilizer to target further down the plant therefore getting better reward.
• Increased yield from the crops, grass and land arability
Aeration improves soil health, therefore making your land more productive and therefore better investments.
• Better soil drainage, less puddles or pugging
Aeration helps with soil drainage, allowing your soil to absorb more water. Puddles and pugging are bad for keeping waterways clean, growth of grass or other plants and more.
• Root growth for better pasture and stronger returns
Overall, root growth is a winner all round, it gives you better pasture, stronger returns from your land.
