Abstract

It is well known that two of the principal soil physical factors that affect root growth are its mechanical strength and temperature. Soil compaction, which results in mechanical impedance that might restrict root growth, arises from mainly externally applied forces such as trampling by animals or farm and tillage equipment and even a small increase in compaction can result in large decrease in root growth and major changes in root morphology.
