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...

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...

Controlled-traffic tour inspires WA growers.. A group of Western Australian growers keen to implement controlled-traffic farming systems crossed the Nullarbor Plain recently to see how their Victorian counterparts have made the transition For growers contemplating a new way of operating, seeing the practice in action often provides the motivation to make that leap... This was the case for 13 Western Australian grain growers who took part in a GRDC-funded tour of Victorian farms where growers are using controlled-traffic farming (CTF)...
