ABSTRACT
This article assesses the degree of soil compaction after the movement of tractors. Altogether three different variants of tractor movement were evaluated: the control Variant I without the tractor movement on the field; Variant II with the movement of tractor with conventional tyres and Variant III with the movement of tractor with dual tyres on rear axle. In all variants the penetrometric resistance was monitored. After each tractor movement, the penetrometric resistance was measured with the penetrometer „SN EIJKELKAMP”. The penetrometric resistance was measured by means of partial measurements performed in every 100 mm with total depth of 600 mm with five replications in each section. The article presents also a graphical representation of dependencies existing between the penetrometric resistance on the one hand and individual variants of tractor movement on the other.

Keywords: soil, tires, double tires, penetrometric resistance
