GRDC Updates Paper



This paper presents examples of successful controlled traffic farming in practice from three farm businesses. These examples have been selected as they provide insight into common questions from non-CTF farmers such as how does livestock or hay fit, how can seeders wider than 12m be included, and the benefits of deep ripping and topsoilinclusion plates.
