Title: Investigation of soil and crop response to fall subsoiling in Southwestern Ontario
Author: Can-Ag Enterprises
Abstract: Subsoil compaction at a depth of about 15 to 30 cm is a serious problem in agriculture. Cropping systems involving few annual crops, excessive tillage, heavy machinery, and operating on very moist soils (especially clayey soils), all contribute to soil compaction. This report presents the results of a two year study on soil compaction, subsoiling with different implements, and crop responses. Fourteen sites throughout Kent County in southwestern Ontario were studied reflecting different soil types and tillage practices. Studies were conducted on replicated field scale strips. Participating farmers were eager to learn more about the effectiveness of subsoiling and their excellent co-operation is sincerely appreciated.
