Improving waterlogged pasture land with the Sumo Grassland Subsoiler

"We only have 21 acres of grassland but we cannot graze about 11 acres during the winter if it turns wet because this area is ironstone with patches of clay. When Chris Baker suggested that we could try the Sumo Grassland Subsoiler, we were rather sceptical but decided to give it a try.   It was done in the autumn when ground conditions were right. It was impressive to watch it pass through the ground lifting the soil up. It did leave the paddock with large slits but they soon closed. In the middle of winter, when the rest of the paddocks were waterlogged, the subsoiled paddock was just spongy with no wet areas at all. This summer the grass growth has improved and been more consistent.  We were very surprised with how effective it was and have booked Chris and the team to do a lot more acres this autumn."
