What does a Grassland Harrow do and reasons for harrowing?

A harrow is used for breaking up and smoothing out the surface of the soil. Harrowing removes unwanted dead grass and levels any mole hills. Its job is to allow air movement and root aeration which helps the soil to breathe and improves water infiltration. It reduces disease by exposing fungi and bacteria to sunlight which is essential for the health of the pasture.

Does harrowing help grass?

Harrowing is beneficial because it aids drainage, helping to minimise muddy patches and standing water. Secondly, it promotes new grass growth by removing the old thatch and giving new shoots the room and oxygen they need to thrive.

When should you harrow?

Harrowing should be done when the conditions are becoming slightly warmer and from March onwards is ideal. The ground will become churned up if you harrow when it’s too wet, while you may not be able to harrow effectively if the land is too dry.
