Managing trafficking can minimise risks of soil compaction and erosion by reducing the weight and/or frequency of machinery passing across soil. 

Potential ways of managing trafficking include changing the size of machinery, adjusting tyre pressures, drilling across slopes, keeping equipment to headlands, adopting a controlled trafficking system, reducing tillage, and avoiding trafficking during wet periods.
