Project: Preparing for the EU Soil Framework Directive by optimal use of Information and Communication Technology across Europe.

The PredICTor project has two main deliverables, i) an online decision support tool for evaluating an intended field traffic situation for a given soil condition and with given machinery (for farmers and agricultural advisers), and ii) an online tool for creating European-wide maps of the wheel load carrying capacity, which is defined as the maximum wheel load the soil can carry at given soil moisture conditions and for a given tyre and tyre inflation pressure (for authorities / soil protection offices). For both of these ICT applications, we update state-of-the-art models for the soil compaction process and combine them with national and European databases on soil properties and (at national level) meteorological data
