Title: The effects of soil compaction on the production of processing vegetables and field crops - A review
Author: Iler, G. S.; Stevenson, C. K.
Abstract: A review is made of effects of soil compaction on processing vegetables and field crops that are grown in Ontario. The relationships between compaction and soil properties are examined, as well as the effect of vehicle traffic, the effect on root growth and distribution, the effect on nutrient availability and uptake, and the growth and yield of crops on compacted soil. Some attention is given to the economic impact of compaction. The processes of compaction measurement and alleviation of compaction are also examined. Areas of research needing further attention are suggested.
