Driving on arable land with heavy machinery when the soil is too moist, leads to compaction in the soil, which severely impairs airflow and drainage. Cultures on heavy soils in particular react to this situation with yield losses.
With the aid of a simple quick test, water infiltration can be examined graphically as one of the characteristics of soil compaction in the field. The quick test is also easily comprehensible and helpful for non-scientists. It is particularly suitable for training and sensitizing apprentices and employees on the farm.
The quick test makes the consequences of soil compaction on water infiltration and the yield of agricultural crops visible. It promotes an understanding of the effects of soil compaction and the importance of soil-conserving cultivation.
