Abstract

Conservation tillage is widely promoted because it has been demonstrated to help reduce erosion. But soil conservation concerns must be balanced against the possibility that such tillage may allow greater chemical leaching (removal of fertilizers and pesticides from the root zone of the soil by downward-percolating water), thus degrading water quality.
