Abstract
The cycle of traffic-induced soil compaction and tillage is a major inefficiency of current mechanised agriculture, where random field traffic wastes energy, damages soil structure and imposes other negative consequences. Controlled traffic farming (CTF) restricts compaction to precise traffic lanes, where it improves wheel performance, allowing natural, uncompromised soil processes and productivity over most of the field. The principles and practices of controlled traffic in Australia, UK and the Netherlands are explained and an overview of worldwide CTF research is provided. Immediate benefits of CTF include reduced fossil energy use and improved field efficie...
