      Comments about Soil Compaction Tester:

      I am trying to bring fifty acres of long abused cotton land back into grain production using organic means. I could have figured out that I had to deal with a plow pan without this device, however, using it makes clear just how severe my compaction problem is. From six to twenty inches throughout the fields I can barely penetrate the old pan. Here comes the sub-soiler at twenty two inches.
