Abstract

Soil compaction is a worldwide issue for agricultural production (Soane and van Ouwerkerk 1995) and is considered the utmost impact of modern agriculture on the environment
(McGarry 2003). The importance of this issue is only heightened by challenges placed on agricultural industries to produce more food and fibre in an efficient manner, and with less land resource, in order to meet the demands of a growing world population (Fraiture et al. 2007).
To address more accurate determination of soil structural deformation due to soil compaction, effort needs to be concentrated on more accurate input data for models and more accurate direct sensing by reducing assumptions associated with isotropic medium and homogenous soil state
behaviours.
