Effect of dynamic load and the intensity of tractor traffic on soil compaction


, : Effect of dynamic load and the intensity of tractor traffic on soil compaction. International Agricultural Mechanization Conference Proceedings of a conference held in Beijing, China, 16-20 October 1991: 2.281

A study was conducted to determine to what extent the tractor dynamic load influences soil compaction and to determine the depth of soil which is affected by the dynamic load. The results showed that soil compaction caused by a tractor without implements was greater than that from a tractor plus implement because the soil was broken by the implement.

During timber exploitation in forest stands, harvesting machines pass repeatedly along the same track and can cause soil compaction, which leads to soil erosion and restricted tree root growth.

The soil-moisture content, with which a desirable state of compaction was associated, was obtained from a graph relating soil-moisture content and bulk density determined in the laboratory; field measurements of compaction were not satisfactory.
