Benefits of permanent traffic lanes in a controlled traffic crop production system

Benefits of permanent traffic lanes in a controlled traffic crop production system

Soil & Tillage Research 3(4): 385-396

Controlled traffic research was initiated to increase crop yields by reducing traffic-induced soil compaction in the crop zone. Crop yields were increased and most of the field research was concerned with the effects of the controlled traffic system on the crop zone. The permanent traffic lanes have produced many additional benefits including: improved tractive efficiency, improved mobility and timeliness of operations. The basic traction and mobility principles involed in controlled traffic on permanent lanes were verified in soil bin studies and are presented. Very little field work has been done on the benefits of permanent traffic lanes.
