Description

Crop producers are increasingly interested in methods to manage higher levels of surface residue. Both economics and soil conservation are responsible for this attention. Six million additional Iowa acres will be shifted to a conservation tillage system during 1992-94 to comply with soil loss goals of the Food Security Act according to plans filed with the Soil Conservation Service. From a production cost viewpoint, fewer machine operations on the land lower input costs and increase net profit if output can be maintained.
