Abstract

CTF is the quiet revolution in crop production systems. Successful CTF systems are being developed and used in Australian grain, sugar, cotton and vegetable industries, European grain and vegetable industries, Canadian and USA grain industries and in southern Africa and South America.
Despite the challenges of machine incompatibility, farm layout and technology integration, farmer-­driven CTF
adoption, and industry and publicly funded research and
development, has occurred on every continent. Substantial
improvements in productivity and sustainability are being
consistently achieved.
