Unlock your Soil's Potential
Soil compaction is a form of soil degradation. It strangles the life out of soil. Yield losses are not uncommon and in extreme cases crop failure and severe erosion can occur.
All farming activities will cause soil compaction. Any vehicle movement or livestock activity will compress the soil. Cultivation breaks down soil aggregates, soil structure, porosity and humus.
Any activity that reduces the porosity or bulk of your soil is causing soil compaction.
