Some Thoughts on Soil Aeration of Pastureland

Soil fertility specialists at the Noble Research Institute are frequently asked to express their opinion regarding the soil aeration of pastureland. After reading an article in The Georgia Cattleman, I felt that Dr. Carl S. Hoveland, the author, summarized how we feel about this subject matter well. Dr. Hoveland is a professor of agronomy at the University of Georgia. The article below is reprinted with his permission (Carl S. Hoveland, “Does Aeration of Pastures and Hayfields Pay?” The Georgia Cattleman, February 2000: 16, 18).
