    Wayne Hanselka said this about these photos:Subject: Re: Fwd: Sub Soil Treatments at Circle RanchChris, thanks for the photos; Chiseling, ripping, subsoiling, etc. areoften necessary to “jumpstart” restoration of the water cycle oncompacted soils; we have experienced essentially a three-foldincrease in grass biomass production after chiseling on South Texas rangelandsplus an increase in forbs due to soil disturbance as well as improvedwater infiltration and efficiency. Not only increased biomassproductionbut also increases in veg. cover and subsequent decreases in bareground. Seeding an appropriate species obviously speeds up theprocess.Good work. Like to visit the ranch sometime.WayneC.
