How Compaction Affects Yield
Compaction acts like a brick below the surface of your fields. It restricts water and root infiltration, preventing optimal plant growth and causing variability in the field. More importantly, it limits yield potential. Uneven crop emergence and stand variability can reduce crop yields by up to 50%.1
