Abstract/Contents:Presents research conducted at the University of Georgia "to evaluate the effectiveness of several cultivation methods for alleviating soil compaction." Details the materials and methods used in the study, stating that "cultivation treatments were compared on Tifway bermudagrass under compaction." Reports that "while all cultivation techniques improved water use, the ones most effective in extracting water in the 8 to 24 inch zone were the Aerway slicer, hollow tine, and deep drill with 9, 8, and 4% [percent] greater water extraction." Concludes that "additional data were obtained such as verdure, canopy temperature, leaf water potential status, and soil physical properties."
