Clay Spreading

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
