Description:
This article contains a more technical review of the research which led to the proof of the project's research hypothesis. Which was that to monitor soil compaction, two differently managed areas (in the case of this study, one was in a pasture and the other was under a near by fenceline) the ratio of the two would remain fairly constant so that farmers can monitor if there is any increase or decrease in pasture soil compaction over a period of time.
