Equipment Modifications to Reduce Soil Compaction provides support to producers who use heavy wagons, manure spreading equipment, etc. where modifications to tire pressure could reduce soil compaction.
Producers who use heavy equipment (e.g., wagons, manure spreading equipment, etc.) where reductions to tire pressure could reduce soil compaction.
- Modifications to equipment:
- Inflation/deflation systems (central tire inflation systems) that reduce field tire pressure to well below the level rated by the tire manufacturers for on road travel
- New tires that have reduced operational tire pressure ratings as compared to the currently used conventional bias or radial tires of the same size. The new tires must represent a significant improvement (reduced tire pressure)
- Track system
