Makers of cultivation equipment and tractors need to know the mechanical properties of top soils. Farmers, too, need knowledge of soil mechanics to make the best choice of equipment. Discusses changes in volume, fracture and soil ductility, soil mechanics and compaction, and tillage processes. Tractors should not be run on soils when the crumb structure is weak (ie wet).-D.J.Davis
