Controlled-traffic systems are often an attractive option for strip-till systems, to reduce compaction and create permanent "lanes" for heavy equipment to travel in year-after-year. 

On June 18-19, the 2nd International Controlled Traffic Farming Conference was held in Prague, Czech Republic. About 120 farmers and researchers from around the world attended to share success stories and discuss ongoing challenges. 

Controlled Traffic Farming Alberta reported on several hot topics of disucssion, including how soon do soils repair, residue management and use of cover crops to improve soil structure.
