How does the RotoKnife work?

Most sports turf managers suffer the effects of ‘black layer’ and/or ‘thatch’ at some point in time. It is customary to feel the need to take action to remove these from the effected areas. Imants takes a more progressive view and has now proven techniques of reducing both thatch and black layer without the damage and cost of alternative procedures.

Thatch

This is simply the build-up of organic matter in the upper levels of the rootzone. The thatch is an accumulation of dead plants, damaged tillers, grass clippings, root and wind blown organic matter which has achieved a state of preservation.

In simple terms thatch is sometimes deliberately produced. Farmers often grow grass, cut it, dry it and call it ‘hay’. Others cut it and keep it wet and call it ‘silage’, therefore any plant matter being rapidly produced and kept too wet for long periods or too dry for long periods will tend to build an organic layer as a result.

Koro by Imants - Recycling Dresser MKII.Heavy-duty aerator and root-zone recycler.

The Recycling Dresser aerates the underlying soil vertically and horizontally, removing the soil from the root-zone and re-distributing it accross the playing surface. Layering and compaction are eliminated, biological activity increased and existing fertilizers in the soil are better utilized. The Recycling Dresser reduces the amount of new top-dressing required, therefore saving labour and material costs and promoting sustainable maintenance. 3 different working widths are available in the new range.
