Why do farmers aerate their soil?



  1. 0 Votes

    Aerating the soil is important for plant growth and ease of nutrient transportation in the soil. The looser the soil is, the easier it is for plants to absorb the nutrients in the soil. When nutrients, Oxygen, and water are unable to pass through compacted soil plants do not get what they need to grow and prosper.

    Aerating the soil basically refreshes it and loosens it. The top few inches of soil get stomped on by cows and compressed by tractors, making it less viable. Aeration is a solution to this problem.
