Abstract

The objectives of this study were: a) to identify a method(s) for measuring soil structural changes which may be related to soil management systems and which can be shown to be useful for characterizing changes in soil quality across a range of soil conditions and, b) to evaluate existing crop productivity models in terms of their suitability for predicting crop response to changes in soil quality.
