Research Thesis Topic
Energy and Productivity Benefits of Controlled Traffic Farming and Conservation Agriculture Systems
Soil compaction affects agricultural lands throughout the world. It leads to reduced water and air entry into soils. It also increases machinery fuel use and results in reduced root growth and crop yields. This project will demonstrate and assess the ability of CTF to improve the productivity and sustainability of conservation farming by avoiding the waste of energy, soil damage and delayed operation caused by the uncontrolled wheel traffic in mechanised agriculture.
