Improving Soil Structure for Maize Farming Note

Soil compaction is a major concern for this year's maize drilling campaign. We're all familiar with stunted maize around compacted gateways, but the past two wet seasons have seen more widespread problems, particularly in continuous maize fields.

This Farming Note covers:

  • The implications of compaction
  • Identifying compaction problems
  • Soil minerals and type and compaction
  • Preventing compaction
  • Resolving compaction problems

Issued February 2009.
