Design of a Horizontal Penetrometer for Measuring On-the-Go Soil Resistance
TLDR
The experimental results showed that the designed system works quite well in the field and the horizontal penetrometer is a practical tool for providing on-line soil resistance measurements.
Mapping soil compaction using indicator kriging in Santa Fe province, Argentina
Soil compaction is a complex physical process that affects the crop performance by limiting the expansion of the roots and the reduction of water and nutrients uptake from soil. Due to the spatial
Sensing and 3D Mapping of Soil Compaction
TLDR
The soil penetrometer designed and tested could be used to assess the soil compaction at topsoil and the randomly distributed hardpan formations just below the common tillage depths, enabling visualization of spatial variability through the imaging software.
COMPARED PERFORMANCE OF PENETROMETERS ANDEFFECT OF SOIL WATER CONTENT ON PENETRATIONRESISTANCE MEASUREMENTS
Modern agriculture techniques have a great impact on crops and soil quality, especially by the increased machinery traffic and weight. Several devices have been developed for determining soil
Soil penetration resistance analysis by multivariate and geostatistical methods
The penetration resistance (PR) is a soil attribute that allows identifies areas with restrictions due to compaction, which results in mechanical impedance for root growth and reduced crop yield. The
Spatial prediction of soil penetration resistance using functional geostatistics
Knowledge of agricultural soils is a relevant factor for the sustainable development of farming activities. Studies on agricultural soils usually begin with the analysis of data obtained from
Spatial distribution of soil mechanical strength in a controlled traffic farming system as determined by cone index and geostatistical techniques.
Controlled traffic farming (CTF) is a mechanisation system in which all load-bearing wheels are confined to the least possible area of permanent traffic lanes and where crops are grown in permanent,
A SENSITIVE PENETROMETER FOR MEASURING SOIL PENETRATION RESISTANCE
oil compaction is one of the main negative factors that limits plant growth and crop yield. Soil mechanical resistance can be used as an indicator of soil compaction. This study is focused on the
Sustainability of Machinery Traffic in Vineyard
Viticulture involves significant levels of machinery traffic, causing heavy soil compaction. In particular, the compaction of the subsoil is increased; a deep tillage could certainly solve the
