||Tied Pasture Renovators
Land degradation through soil
erosion limits the long term productivity of grazing lands.
managed pasture provides the most effective and economical method of
controlling erosion in grazing land.
||The primary aim of the
Pasture Renovator is to increase pasture rejuvenation, increase
water infiltration and reduce runoff.|
The Pasture Renovator rips
the ground, opens the furrow, spreads seed and forms a tie in the
Each one of these operations has it's own significance in
pasture development or renovation.

Tynes break up the compacted layers in the soil, the Furrow Opener
was added to increase the amount of surface storage and a Tieing
Disc which forms a tie (or dam) in the furrow at optional spacings
prevents water flowing along the furrow controlling runoff
concentration, erosion and trapping valuable silt. Trialled with
excellent results in clay pans.

compartments designed for planting grass seed such as Buffel, Green

diameter can be planted.

successful demonstration of the Forsyth Motors Pasture Renovator. A
leading group of local farmers, graziers and Land Care officials were in
attendance during the afternoon.
