dc.description.abstractWith controlled traffic tillage, the field is divided into "traffic zones" to which all wheel traffic is confined and `production zones" where the plants are grown and there is no wheel compaction. Researchers have shown that using this concept can result in significantly lower tillage costs and field work time than with conventional "broadcast" tillage systems. Most researchers have shown that controlled traffic cotton yields are as high, and are sometimes higher than with conventional tillage. In our research, we have not measured any differences in yield or soil compaction between controlled traffic and conventional tillage systems.
