VLIR-UOS - Vlaamse Interuniversitaire Raad - Flemish Interuniversity Council

Titre : Prevention of soil compaction by agricultural operations in Chuquisaca, Bolivia

Pays : Bolivie

Durée : 01/02/2016 - 30/04/2021

Descriptif
This project will develop a decision support tool that allows to evaluate the risk of soil compaction due to agricultural operations with heavy machinery. The tool compares mechanical strength of the soil with stresses propagated in soil and exerted by wheels from machinery driving on the soil. It will be used to raise awareness to soil compaction. Meanwhile, the capacity of SFXU staff regarding teaching and research on soil compaction in an agricultural context will be enhanced.
