dc.description The topic of the article is about the compaction of farm land soils via heavy farm machinery. Compaction reduces the aeration and the porousness of the soil. Roots have difficulty passing through compacted soils. Anaerobic conditions may be resultant depleting the availability of nutrients in the soil for plant life/crops. In agriculture, large areas of compacted soils may greatly reduce crop yields. Proper management of soil conditions is cited as being a remedy for this problem. Water satiated soils offer more opportunities for increased soil compaction, thus, reducing large soil pores essential for proper aeration and soil tilth. .
