Controlled Traffic Farming research has been running on plot at Harper Adams University for 12 years.
The work investigates soil properties and crop performance as a result of three traffic systems (Controlled Traffic Farming, Standard Tyre Pressure, Low Tyre Pressure) subject to three tillage depths (250mm, 100mm and no-till).
Opening a recent Soil and Water Management Centre event, which drew together experts in soil health, engineering, agronomy and more alongside industry representatives, Harper Adams Visiting Professor in Engineering Richard Godwin said: “We believe that this is the only long-term international study focusing on soil management techniques where the interaction between traffic management practices and different tillage practices are considered.”
