    A few minutes adjusting tyre pressure can improve a crop

    “Soil compaction is probably the most significant challenge to all crop development,” says Bill Basford, Independent Mechanisation Specialist. Bill will be giving advice about matching tyres and pressure to soil conditions in a workshop during Agri-Tech Week.

    He says: “Improvements in tyre technology in recent years has included both increased flex (IF) and very-high flex (VF) specifications. This allows tyres greater flexion with a larger footprint and better traction. Alongside this, recent developments in on-board tyre pressure selection can enable pressure to be selected according to soil conditions and this minimises compaction.”
