Abstract

Agricultural scientists are continuously seeking tillage systems which embody the best soil and water conservation principles without sacrificing yields. To be acceptable a system, in addition to providing year-round protection for the soil, must assure adequate yields and provide for efficient use of labor and machinery. In their attempt to find such a system United States Department of Agriculture and Iowa Experiment Station agricultural engineers and agronomists have been studying tillage systems.
