The Cost of Compaction & How To Avoid It!

Soil compaction is a silent yield robber. Unlike a wind storm or hail damage, you may not see the harm to your crop — but you will certainly see it on your combine’s yield monitor. In the old days we thought deep ripping was the solution to correcting soil compaction but that’s timely -- and with the price of diesel —  exceedingly expensive. XtremeAg’s Kevin Matthews discusses the cause and cost of compaction and offers solutions on avoiding or rectifying the problem. From tire pressure adjustments to cover crop utilization and a few other tips, Kevin can help you keep your soils un-compacted!
