Abstract

In recent years there has been an increasingly greater focus on removing corn residue from fields following harvest. The two main reasons are for use as a low cost feedstuff for cattle production and for future use in cellulosic ethanol production. This leads to the question of “What effects will there be from removing corn residue following harvest?” This trial was set up to address potential soil quality concerns as well as look at impacts on grain yield.
