Soil compaction should receive attention on World Soil Day

Soil compaction below the plough layer is an increasing problem due to heavy farm machinery. For the past five years, Aarhus University has focused on this threat in an EU project about soil quality. This work has provided important knowledge about compaction mechanisms and the possibilities of mitigating the problem.
