  Soil Compaction
By Mike Parker CCA-ON, CCS
Crop Sales Specialist  
Wanstead Farmers' Co-operative - Alvinston

It has been said that after 48 hours in water, corn roots begin to die. Soils which lack structure more often than not suffer from soil compaction. This lack of structure leads to saturated soils and more runoff after rain events. The result is a low oxygen condition that impacts on crop root development and nutrient uptake.
