Agricultural machinery keeps getting larger and heavier to enable arable farmers to use more land without increasing their labour requirements. That heavy machinery causes soil compaction, which can lead to serious declines in yields. The challenge is therefore to design mechanisation in such a way that it prevents soil compaction without also increasing labour requirements.
