Stamp Out Soil Compaction

Stamp Out Soil Compaction

Minimise soil compaction with the correct choice of tyres and tyre pressures

Start
Stamp Out Soil Compaction


The weight of farm vehicles and the tyre pressures chosen are a major contributor to soil compaction. Increased axle weights, caused by heavy implements and more powerful machines, can be offset by tyres that can spread this weight. Damage to topsoil is caused by incorrect tyre inflation, whilst compaction in subsoil is largely caused by increased axle loads. Calculating the correct pressure for load will minimise the impact farming has on both and protect our soil for the future.

We have developed the TireTech mobile app to help operators choose the correct pressure for any given load.

In the first of a series of farm tests we worked with former British Ploughing Champion Peter Alderslade and KUHN Farm Machinery to demonstrate how tyre pressure can affect soil compaction. Read about the full test here or watch the video below.

Farmers warned to tread carefully on wet soil

Extreme weather conditions, melted snow and heavy rainfalls can leave fields extremely wet or waterlogged. Using heavy machinery in wet conditions increases the risk of soil compaction so farmers are being advised to adjust tire pressures or risk causing irreparable damage.
