Soil compaction causes loss of up to 15% of the yield!

For the effective control of soil compactions it is necessary to know the depth of their deposits, in order to correctly plan the work of tillage equipment.

From precision to digital farming.

Digital penetrometer S600 SkokAgro identifies compaction hidden up to the depth of 60 cm with 1 cm step and links every test point through GPS to the map and to the profile of the field. Online data analytics software processes data received from each point of soil compaction measurement and allows to visualize the depth of its’ location.

Esperance, Western Australia

Deep ripping mechanically breaks up compacted soil layers, however care must be taken to ensure results are effective. Deep ripping uses strong tines working down to 35-50cm depth to loosen hard layers of soil.

Cascade, Western Australia

Tine spacing, working depth, shallow leading tines or discs, soil moisture content, timing and soil type all need to be taken into account. Not all soils and crops respond positively to deep ripping every season. Benefits usually last for about three seasons but can last more than 10 seasons with controlled traffic systems on light sands.

Narrogin, Western Australia

Deep ripping is most effective in deep sandy-textured soils where roots need to grow deep to access subsoil moisture. Deep ripping is of particular benefit when it is used to break through a compacted pan or distinct constraining layer, allowing root access to unconstrained soil water beneath this layer.

Beaumont, Western Australia

Deep ripping (deep tillage) involves the use of strong deep working tines that penetrate the compacted soil and mechanically break up and shatter the soil hard pan.

For deep ripping to be effective:

-The ripping tines must be able to penetrate just below the compacted soil layer
-Soil must be moist enough to allow penetration of the ripping tines but not so moist that the tines cause smearing without fracturing and shattering the soil.

Deep ripping (50 cm depth), WA

Some firming of the soil surface by a roller or soil packer behind the deep ripper can be beneficial to avoid sowing too deep on soft, deep ripped soil. A roller or soil packer behind the deep ripper or attaching wings behind the tines can minimise the risk of a rough soil surface and soil softness causing uneven seeding depth and crop establishment.
