Abstract

Current wet soil conditions present challenges to early season fieldwork. Whether it is planting beans or corn, cultivating or rotary hoeing – there is high potential to cause significant soil structure damage. Make a risk assessment before rushing out to the field on the first few days of dry weather to work the ground. When soil moisture is at or exceeds field capacity, there is an increased potential for soil compaction, particularly at topsoil depths.
