The e-book is the outcome of five years of work on the GRDC-funded project "Application of controlled traffic farming in the low rainfall zone", which set out to answer grain grower's questions about the adoption of controlled traffic farming (CTF) in the south eastern Australian low rainfall zone.
CTF is a farming production technique that keeps the wheels and tracks of all cropping equipment to 12-18 per cent of paddock area, leaving the remaining ground always uncompacted and in optimum condition for crop productivity.
While the hard data and analysis in the e-book is primarily from the low rainfall zone, the book also contains information of potential interest to grain growers in all other production zones across Australia.
Various aspects of a CTF system can be applied in all places and to all grain, fibre or forage crops.
