MADISON, Wis. -

The state agriculture and transportation departments are starting a series of public hearings on the impact of farm equipment on Wisconsin roads.

Farm equipment has been getting larger and heavier. The new technology makes farming more efficient, but the size of the equipment can increase wear on roads.

The departments are holding the meetings with farmers, local highway officials and others to present and discuss recommendations made by a study group that looked at the issue. The group has made a number of recommendations regarding the size and weight limits for equipment driven on roads.

The first meeting will be at 7 p.m. Monday at the University of Wisconsin Extension Office in Madison.

Additional meetings will be held Tuesday in Stratford and later in Cashton, Green Bay and Chippewa Falls.
