The RanchWorx AdvantageProsperity Through Soil Care
Conventional cultivation can have devastating effects on soil. With traditional cultivation techniques, soil is often ploughed several times to create a fine seed bed and control weeds. This will expose soil particles to erosion from wind and rain, destroy humus and result in severe breakdown of soil structure. Repeated passes by heavy tractors and equipment lead to soil degeneration and to the formation of almost impenetrable layers of compacted soil ("hard pan") below the surface.
When soil is compacted and a "hard pan" forms; helpful soil microbes and earthworms are reduced or eliminated, pastures dry out faster, become waterlogged quicker and plant growth is restricted; resulting in lower crop and pasture yields. The RanchWorx Aerator's blades will penetrate and shatter the "hard pan" without exposing the soil to erosion. It works in all soil types - from sandy to heavy clay to rocky - from flawless hayfields to rugged terrains. Hillsides are able to capture the rainwater and avoid run-off. Chemical and natural fertilizers are absorbed and filtered through the soil to grass roots.
In its no-till application, hay fields can be worked while leaving them smooth. Grass roots remain down - not exposed to sunlight. Cattle can remain in worked fields. Because our uncompromised quality extends throughout the RanchWorx and Lawson Series product lines, little maintenance is needed to keep each aerator working for generations to come.
Benefits of Using A RanchWorx Aerator
Our Aerators are a great option for no-till operations to help improve their soil health
The design of a RanchWorx Aerator means little to no disruption of the soil coverage, while still breaking up of the bound roots and soil compaction. Giving clear pathways for organic matter, nutrients, and water to reach to root layers in the soil, allowing the soil to store nutrients and water for when the roots need them the most.
Enhanced Soil Conditions
RanchWorx Aerators help remove soil compaction and root bound layers
Removing soil compaction and improving soil structure allows your soil to hold and conduct water, nutrients, and air necessary for plant root activity. Cutting through root bound layers and creating soil that promotes and allows for roots to grow down deeper and access water and nutrient reserves is one of the easiest ways to improve your soil health.
