The Champlain Valley Crop, Soils, and Pasture Team will lead a hands-on discussion of benefits and challenges of aeration tillage on hay ground. We will examine:
- Compaction relief
- Manure incorporation
- Potential drawbacks
Results from a 2-year SARE research project studying the aeration of permanent hay land will be presented and discussed. Additionally, GPS guidance assist will be discussed as a way to make aeration tillage more efficient.
