ABSTRACT
Soil compaction constitutes serious engineering problems in agriculture that researchers have been contending with to proffer sustainable solution. This review work was carried out to contribute to the fixing of the problems. Effects of soilcompaction have eaten deep and are adversely affecting the production of food and fibre throughout the world. Soilcompaction occurs when soil particles are pressed together, leading to increased density and reduction in soil porespace. Thus, physical structure of the soil finds it difficult to support and applied mechanical stress leading to loss of soilstructural units, decrease...
