#PoaDay a virtual field day event hosted by members of university’s turfgrass and ornamental weed science team. The goals of the event are to educate turfgrass managers about the different strategies available for annual bluegrass control, Poa annua. This event is sponsored by AQUA-AID Solutions.
Heavy-duty linear decompactor
The Imants ShockWave is a linear decompactor designed to both maintain proper soil porosity and bulk density during the growing season and revitalize heavy wear areas by relieving soil compaction, improving aeration and removing surface water. At a working depth of 4 1⁄2” to 10” or 15” depending on the model, the ShockWave provides maximum surface decompaction with minimal surface disruption. The ShockWave is reputed to be the world’s fastest PTO driven rotary, linear decompactor. All ShockWave models feature a no-chains, direct drive design, and maintenance free “sealed for life” bearings. The ShockWave features overload protection by a torque limiting PTO shaft.
