Project: Machinery induced compaction of agricultural soil and mitigation strategies in the Danube Region 2015-2016

The soil is a main resource in agricultural production and should be protected. Due to cultivation with farm machinery, soils are physically stressed. The main purpose of the project is to increase the awareness of farm machinery- induced soil compaction with the knowledge transfer tor to relevant stakeholders (agricultural students, farmers, farm machinery companies and farm advisory system). Besides that, selected farm machineries are analysed regarding to soil compaction risk with an Excel-based software Tool (TASC V3. 2013). The technical solutions for soil protecting traffic (increased contract area between tyre/soil, Controlled Traffic Farming - CTF, etc.) and other mitigation options are developed. The project-partners, deals with the general problem of machinery induced compaction in each participated country. Scientific publications are collected discussed in one workshop. Presentations for lectures at the Universities and for the stakeholders will be prepared. Knowledge distribution will be done via publications in agricultural magazine.
