Do you feel like soil compaction is squeezing your yields? Are you wondering what you can do about it? Every pass of equipment has the risk of soil compaction. Compaction affects root growth and crop performance through changes to water infiltration, crop nutrient availability, disease, and other factors. Typical approaches to alleviating soil compaction include deep tillage or waiting on the freeze-thaw cycles brought on by the seasons. However, these approaches are not adequate for managing compacted soils, and relying on them can actually create additional problems. Learn how farmers can deal with soil compaction and build proven strategies to minimize their risk in the future. This webinar will also discuss the benefits one might expect from these efforts.
