Controlled traffic cropping systems


, : Controlled traffic cropping systems. Conference on agricultural engineering, Adelaide, Australia, 24-28 August, 1986 Preprints of papers: 234-238

Two years comparison of controlled traffic tillage to conventional tillage were evaluated. Tests of tractor drawbar pull, wheel slip, fuel consumption and groundspeed, show a 46% reduction in tillage fuel consumption using controlled traffic.
