  • Minimize and Reduce Soil Compaction

    Soil compaction is a common problem that many producers face but that is often overlooked. Significant soil compaction can also reduce forage yields and slow forage establishment which, in the long run, costs money. Management practices can be used to reduce and correct this problem while improving soil conditions.University of Kentucky

  • Understanding Soil Compaction

    Understanding Soil Compaction. Soil compaction is the hardening of soil due to continuous wheel or foot traffic which squeezes the air from between the soil particles. Compacted soil has its density increased and its pore spaces reduced. This has the result of decreasing the ability of water to infiltrate through the soil into the ground.

  • Machinery Options for Reducing Soil Compaction in Crop

    Soil compaction in the upper part of the soil profile is greatly influenced by the contact pressure, so lower tire inflation pressure can help reduce compaction. From a practical standpoint, conducting field operations at the lowest recommended tire pressure can be challenging, as proper tire pressure for road speeds can be 2-3x higher than

  • Tires, Traction and Compaction

    Tires, Traction and Compaction Jodi DeJong-Hughes, University of Minnesota Extension 1. What is Compaction? Soil compaction occurs when soil particles are pressed together, reducing pore space between them (Figure 1). Heavily compacted soils contain few large pores, less total pore volume and consequently a greater density.

  • Soil Compation Impact on Yield

    Soil compaction reduces soil drainage, aeration, yields, root growth, and the ability of plants to recover from disturbance, while simultaneously increasing surface runoff and soil erosion. Compaction can be severe in wet, clay soil and it is increased by the use of heavy machinery during planting and harvesting, especially in wet soil conditions.
