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...

Controlled traffic farming (CTF) can increase the average profit from cropped areas on a large-scale Western Australian farm by more than $47 per hectare, crop farm simulation modelling has shown... The results, included in a new Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Controlled Traffic Farming fact sheet, were based on crops yielding 1.2 tonne per hectare on a typical farm in the State's western central grainbelt in 2012... Department of Agriculture and Food (DAFWA) researcher Paul Blackwell said the research, funded by Caring for Our Country, showed that about three-quarters of the profit gained came from improved yield and grain quality...

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...

Soil compaction workshops are being held in Geraldton and Bencubbin this month for growers interested in implementing a controlled traffic farming (CTF) system... WA researchers, agronomists and growers are also seeing crop yield responses of 0.5-1 tonne per hectare where CTF is being used in conjunction with deep ripping on compacted sands in parts of the central grainbelt... A range of CTF experts will address the Geraldton and Bencubbin Deeper Roots Workshops, including: Andrew Newall from NewAg Consulting in Horsham, who has extensive experience with clients developing a CTF system; DAFWA researchers; and a team of local consultants...

As a general rule, a machine with a 10-tonne axle weight causes crop-constraining soil compaction to a depth of 30 centimetres... GRDC-funded research by the Department of Agriculture and Food, WA (DAFWA) is finding that deep ripping, or other soil-compaction amelioration tactics, combined with controlled-traffic farming (CTF) can help to overcome deep soil compaction and reduce the risks of re-compaction... DAFWA researcher Bindi Isbister is part of a GRDC-funded project delving into the use of deep ripping and other soil-compaction-amelioration tactics with CTF to address deep subsoil compaction...

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...
