Description

The 1993 crop season will be one that few Iowa farmers will forget. Excess precipitation was common from the last half of 1992 and throughout the entire 1993 cropping season. There has been an increased concern over soil compaction problems throughout this season, and what these problems may create for the 1994 crop year. The objective of this paper will be to review how and why the problem has occurred and what should be done, if anything, to minimize the problem in 1994.
