To dispatch difficulties in soil tillage farmers are usually advised by representatives of agricultural mechanisation companies to replace weaker tractors with stronger and heavier ones. When farmers have enough money they usually follow these instructions, but this is not a solution for a long term. Instead of buying heavier and soil structure destroying tractors the project group is searching for solution in pointing out biological aspect, this is in appropriate agrotechnical methods and crop rotation. This concept is more compatible with the concept of sustainable agriculture.
