The video said aeration allowed the roots to GET oxygen. Roots don’t absorb oxygen, they produce oxygen. They take in carbon dioxide......

Mike, appreciate the response and clarification. In any case, the ability to "breath" is part of the reason why aeration is needed.

Glad to know how the green is revitalised.

I’m surprised that only Bermuda greens were discussed in this video. We have to do the same thing up north. there are other aeration techniques that were not mentioned. Is deep tyne aeration the most effective?

BradleySKlein

Certainly worth a separate video report. Thanks for the suggestion. The thatch build up rate on Bermuda is much more aggressive than on bentgrass. We will be mindful to clarify the differences in a follow up report.

How about Poa Annua which our course has up in Canada
