Description

Soil compaction has become a major topic of discussion among scientists and crop producers in recent years. Even though some producers consider soil compaction to be a problem on their own farms, they feel resigned to the fact that there is little they can do to control it. Some recent solutions have been offered based on research efforts with soil compaction. There is significant interest in developing crop production systems with controlled traffic to help control the problem of soil compaction. There have also been new machine developments to address the problem of soil compaction, particularly with rubber tracked equipment and lower pressure tires.
