Abstract

Pipeline installations have been reported to cause soil compaction. Recently, an energy transfer pipeline was installed across the upper Midwest of the United State that affected agricultural land throughout the state of Iowa. Long-term research is needed to determine the best management practices to remediate subsoil compaction, and restore topsoil productivity to allow for maximum crop yield recovery.
