This book describes various aspects of machineryinduced compaction of arable soils from both a scientific and a practical point of view. It is largely based on experiences from Sweden and other Scandinavian countries, where field experimentation on soil and crop responses to machinery traffic has been more extensive than in most other parts of the world. The following subjects are discussed in the book's nine independent chapters: 1) Traffic intensity in arable fields 2) Stress distribution under wheels and tracks 3) Extent and persistence of soil compaction 4) Effects of compaction on soil properties and processes 5) Effects of compaction on crop growth and yield 6) Ecological and environmental effects of compaction 7) Methods to minimize compaction or its negative effects 8) Economic consequences of compaction 9) Current situation and need for load limits.
