Abstract/Contents:"We have six tiers which are divided up into 12 plots each. Three of these tiers are compacted and three are uncompacted. On each of the six tiers half those plots are thatched and three unthatched. Six of the plots on each tier are aerated - three of the thatched and three unthatched. When you start applying the water, you can really see the results because it just runs off the compacted ones that have not been aerified. On the difference in the amount of water running off, I get about 80% running off the compacted plots that haven't been aerified and that was reduced down anywhere from 30% to 50%. On the non-compacted plots I only get about 20% runoff from the unaerified ones. That goes from zero to only 1% or 2% on the aerified. Most of my data is just picked out stuff. I haven't analyzed anything as yet."
