Compacted soil has had the air space squeezed out by machine, animal feet or nature itself (rain). Root growth, therefore plant production is inhibited.
Healthy soil contains a balance of mineral, air, water and organic matter. Approximately 1/4 of the volume of a healthy soil is made up of air pores.
AerWay Shattertine technology refers to the twist and lean of the tine and the ability of the tine to lift the soil like a small spade, shattering the compacted layers and recreating the air space in the soil profile.
Aerated soil is loosened soil with ideal air/water balance and an environment for maximum root growth.
