Abstract:

In the absence of a practical monitor of soil compaction, the increasing size of agricultural tractors is largely dominated by the upward trend in labour charges. The object of this study is to assess the feasibility of developing a compaction penalty index as a function of the penetration resistance of the soil and soil type.
