Soil Compaction & Planting

Posted by Jim Enyart on Jan 10, 2020 4:28:12 PM

Last spring was a “character building” planting season to say the least. Too many farmers, particularly in the Midwest, got their crops in the ground very late if at all.

Whether this coming planting season will be as wet or not, there's no question that reducing soil compaction should be top of mind . . . as in, running your equipment on Ag tires designed to minimize soil compaction. A tire with self-cleaning properties can also be a huge asset.

CEAT FARMAX R85-2The CEAT FARMAX R85 can provide you a valuable assist! Available for rim sizes 20 to 46 inches, it is designed to provide exceptional CTR: low compaction, high traction and high roadability.

Due to its flexible sidewalls, superior construction, wider tread face and higher inner tire volume, the CEAT FARMAX R85 helps reduce soil compaction and carries more load at lower pressure.

The FARMAX R85’s lower lug angle at the shoulder gives better traction, while its higher lug angle and lug overlap at the center of the tread provide better roadability.

We have a growing number of FARMAX R85s in the fields now across the US and Canada; farmers are reporting excellent results.
