Controlled Traffic Farming

CTF Technical Manual Launch 2014
NACC is working to increase the knowledge and skills of farmers in the Northern Agricultral Region on Controlled Traffic Farming practices.

Controlled Traffic Farming (CTF) is: a crop production system in which the crop zone and the traffic lanes are distinctly and permanently separated. In practice it means that all implements have a particular span, or multiple of it, and all wheel tracks are confined to specific traffic lanes.

Benefits include higher crop income from greater yield and better grain quality and improved input efficiency from less overlap, better access for in-crop operations and less fuel use from running on firm tracks.

NACC is working to increase the knowledge and skills of farmers in the Northern Agricultral Region on Controlled Traffic Farming practices to decrease subsoil compaction, increase soil health and reduce the risk of erosion.

Activities include updating technical manuals, workshops, field days, on-farm demonstrations, extension materials, and developing case studies and promotional videos.
