Reduction of soil bearing capacity in paddy field due to introduction of double cropping of paddy. Agricultural engineering study in the Muda area, Malaysia. (I)



Reduction of soil bearing capacity in paddy field due to introduction of double cropping of paddy. Agricultural engineering study in the Muda area, Malaysia. (I)



Bulletin of the National Research Institute of Agricultural Engineering, Japan (18): 31-41



In the Muda area, Malaysia, the soil bearing capacity has decreased rapidly since the introduction of double cropping in 1970. This was attributable to a shortening of the drying period of the field surface, and to damage to the hard layer, located at 10 to 20 cm depth, as a result of the introduction of large machinery for farming operations. Low canal density of approximately 10 m/ha, severely restricting field water management, has also contributed to this problem.
