Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "characterize the change of soil physical properties in different root zones after a) aeration with high pressure water injection...and b) deep solid tine cultivation." States that "measurements of soil physical parameters were performed before and after treatment, and additionally penetration resistance was recorded after subsequent compaction." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "the trial was performed with two replications. For the treatments, the 3 m [meter] x 5 m plots were divided into three parts: control, Hj [Hydroject] and TS [Terra Spike]. The soil physical parameters, measured before and after aeration treatments, were pore size distribution, soil bulk density and other by undisturbed soil cores, and penetration resistance by Ejkelkamp 06.15 Penetrologger." Reports that "the aeration treatments showed significant decrease of penetration resistance for both aeration methods at soil depths between 6 to 12 cm [centimeters]." Concludes that "in order to maintain good growing conditions in root zones of sports fields, a combination of different aeration treatments should be applied in intervals of approximately six weeks during the playing season, depending on the intensity of play. Thus, it is important to evaluate the actual soil conditions to avoid adverse effects and improve growing conditions for turfgrasses."
