farm machinery wheeling is considered a major source of soil compaction. the use of chisel plow can minimize such effects, but the chisel can cause subsurface compaction. the aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of traffic and is present below the compaction layer thought compressive parameters of soil. the treatments investigated were: no-tillage, no-tillage with additional traffic (traffic intensity of 24.67mg km ha-1), no-tillage chiseling recent implanted, no-tillage with additional traffic and chiseling recent implanted. for the density, void ratio, preconsolidation pressure and coefficient of compressibility determination in the layers 0.0-0.10m, 0.10-0.20m, 0.20-0.30m and 0.30 to 0.40m samples were collected. the treatment no-tillage showed the lowest load support capacity and greater susceptibility to compaction. the traffic intensity of 24.67mg km ha-1 increased bulk density and decreased void ratio until 0.30m depth. the chisel plow did not affect the preconsolidation pressure and coefficient of compressibility of soil layer below the line of action of the chisel tip.
