The thermal conductivity: an alternative method for the measurement of soil compaction



The thermal conductivity: an alternative method for the measurement of soil compaction



Journal of Agriculture and Rural Development in the Tropics and Subtropics 104(2): 173-180



Four treatments of tillage (viz., vibratory chisel, conventional tillage, direct drilling and mulch tiller) were compared by measuring soil thermal conductivity. The investigation was carried out on a soyabean field in Palmira, Colombia. Bulk density and difference between treatments pointed to the discriminatory capacity of the method.
