Soil compaction not only causes drainage problems it can restrict sustainable root development, thus causing weaker and sickly plants more prone to disease and drought, by using the Agreto Soil Penometre you can identify the pan layer and depth and in turn take action with suitable cultivations.
The benefits are an increase in plant root development an increase in fertiliser and all chemical spray effectiveness.
By reducing a 'pan' there is an increase in overall water retention and availability to the plant root structure thus ensuring a stronger & healthier plant which in turn can reduce input costs.
