Controlled traffic farming on a field scale in the UK

Controlled traffic farming on a field scale in the UK

Advances in Geoecology (39): 251-260

A system of controlled traffic was introduced on 8-ha of Hanslope clay soil on a commercial farm located in the UK growing a rotation of combinable crops. Random trafficking of the soil was prevented by adopting a common 3-m track for all vehicles and a common 6.67-m implement width and a direct multiple (20 m) for chemical applicators.
