The balance between soil moisture content and timeliness of production activities can result in situations where equipment operates in soil that are too wet and soil structure is compromised. Tillage activities can be intense enough to result in reduced ability of the soil to develop longterm structure. Improper weight versus tire distribution.
• Adoption of reduced tillage
• Cover crops
• Maintain proper pH to manage calcium.
• Tiling to dry field in critical planting and harvesting windows.
