NTIS: PB/84-166644 :112 pages
This study appraises available deeper soil loosening equipment in the 1- to 4-ft-depth range, in the United States and abroad, that has potential for Illinois prime farmland reclamation. The appraisal was based on written and/or oral contacts with equipment manufacturers, reclamation experts, and visits with selected equipment manufacturers. The results indicate that several manufacturers in the United States, the Federal Republic of Germany, and England market static and vibratory deeper soil loosening equipment that may have potential for application in Illinois. Pertinent information concerning equipment with potential is presented in this report.
