Clay Spreading

Clay Spreading began in the early to mid 1990’s in the Upper South East of South Australia, and has since become widespread practice for the treatment of non-wetting sands. Densley Earthmoving has been involved with clay spreading since its inception, and helped to refine the practice.
Benefits include:

  • Correction of non-wetting sand issues
  • Increase moisture infiltration
  • Increase in water holding capacity of soil profile
  • Reduction of fertilizer leaching through soil profile
  • Increase in yields
  • Increase in frost resistance
  • Decreased risk of wind erosion
  • Better quality pastures
  • More even weed germination
  • Increased microbial activity
