Abstract:
The compaction of soil due to repeated field operation for many years makes the soils an impermeable layer called soil hardpan. The introduction of heavy machinery is also responsible for creating soil hard pan. A great amount of variability in the depth and thickness of hardpan layers of the different regions. However, farmers till the soil at constant depth leading to higher tillage costs. Optimum tillage depth may be shallower in some parts of the field. Variable depth tillage could be beneficial in optimizing the production costs. The aim of this study was to understand if the variable depth tillage is feasible. The energy savings of 56.4% and fuel savings of 33.8% could be achieved by adopting the variable-depth tillage system over the uniform and constant-depth (conventional) tillage. Therefore, VDT is recommended due to its advantages on energy and fuel savings
