Investigations on the prevention and curing of soil compaction in orchards



Investigations on the prevention and curing of soil compaction in orchards



ErwObstb 7: 169-72. bibl. 3



Investigations in apple orchards on several different soils in the Rhineland showed that soil compaction is slight if wide tyres are used on spray equipment. Mulching wheel tracks with straw or other materials did not prevent compaction. Deep ploughing of compacted wheel tracks gave no lasting improvement.
