- Bulk density of horizons and layers in soil profiles at two locations (for natural soil and soil above pipelines and a tileline) showed that modification of the Erie channery silt loam fragipan by mechanical disturbance alone results in re-establishing dense soil layers in less than 11 years. Buried topsoil, however, was much less dense after 12 years.
