Seed-based webinar follow-up #10

In previously farmed fields (intensive) is subsurface compaction an issue?

Not at our sites, but they are pretty sandy, so compaction really isn't much of an issue. I don't know anyone around the Midwest or Great Plains who is trying to do anything about previous soil compaction, but that doesn't mean it might not be an issue. I guess I would be hopeful that establishing a good native community would eventually solve compaction issues by establishing an ever-increasingly strong root system belowground. Don't really have a good answer for this, though.
