I would like to remind people that with the bad weather we have been having over the last three years, pests and diseases are rampant and more and more often you hear of Phytophthora problems (water borne).
By using the Terralift machine to aerate beyond the root zone (one-metre) we can get the excess water to drain away and increase the oxygen percentage the roots can access. Injection of the dried seaweed on the tail end of the blast of compressed air expands and contracts with the moisture content in the soil, keeping the fractures and fissures open. Backfilling the probe holes with aggregate aids in the whole aeration process.
The process is carried out using two-metre centre spacings, meaning each air blast interconnects with previous shots. Because the aeration treatment has opened the soil around the root zone, applying a further liquid treatment ensures the best result.
No other aeration machine can address this problem more thoroughly because they don't reach the depth, nor inject the right product. Water laying in the root zone creates anaerobic conditions, but the Terralift probe goes deeper that's why it is so effective.
