Push to increase update of CTF.. Researchers across southern Australia are embarking on a new five-year controlled-traffic farming (CTF) project to increase soil productivity in low-rainfall areas of southern Australia... The first phase of the project will identify and address the current questions being posed by growers about the place for CTF in their farming systems," Dr Fisher says...

ImPLemenTInG A COnTrOLLed TrAffIC fArmInG SySTem.. Controlled traffic farming (CTf) is a farming system built on permanent wheel tracks where the crop zone and traffic lanes are permanently separated... Costs of conversion to CTf depend on how well your current machinery fits, the length of a transition plan and the capacity to use partial CTf to accommodate existing machinery configurations...

In the central wheatbelt researchers, agronomists and growers are seeing crop yield responses of 0.5 to 1 tonne per hectare where CTF is being used in conjunction with deep-ripping on compacted sands... Department of Agriculture and Food, WA (DAFWA) officers Dr Paul Blackwell and Bindi Isbister say global research shows that where CTF is being used to help protect investments in deep-ripping or other mechanical amelioration tactics for compacted soils (such as inversion ploughing, rotary spading, delving and deep working seeding points) the benefits can last for many years... DAFWA-Liebe Group trials at Buntine are also finding wheat yield gains of up to 15 to 42 per cent - depending on the season - are possible from using CTF with deep-ripping to a depth of 35 to 40 centimetres on compacted sands in years with below-average rainfall...

"Without CTF, the benefits of these tillage systems to alleviate compaction might only last for a season or two," Dr Blackwell says...

Australian research over 20 years has shown controlled traffic farming (CTF) can improve grain quality and increase grain yields by two to 16 per cent if there are no other limiting subsoil constraints... CTF systems alleviate soil compaction constraints and can deliver unique operating efficiencies and agronomic opportunities... The Fact Sheet provides practical information on setting up a CTF crop production system, including aspects such as management zones, machinery operating widths, field layout and tillage systems...

The project "From Controlled Traffic Farming (CTF) and Raised Bed Farming (RBF) to Information Rich Agriculture (IRA)" has achieved the SIP09 goal of Managing Variability by understanding causes, identifying solutions and helping growers to apply these spatial technologies... Variability is measured at the necessary scale with yield monitoring and high resolution imagery and topography... The project has provided the grains industry with a clear direction into the information age for increased profitability and sustainability...
