The Agronomists, Ep 130: Tires vs tracks and compaction, with Nick Dubuc and Marla Riekman

by

Every fall, farmers race against Mother Nature to bring in the harvest; nearly as often equipment sizes increase, putting significant pressure on soil and causing compaction.

To navigate the risk of compaction at harvest — and at planting! — this episode of The Agronomists features Nick Dubuc, farmer and ag engineer, and Marla Riekman of Manitoba Agriculture, to discuss when compaction risk is highest, how tires and tracks can manage compaction impact, and what can be done to decrease the long-term risk of compacted soil.
