Description

No-till is becoming more popular because it reduces soil erosion, improves water conservation, and decreases labor requirements. Unfortunately, the crop residues that protect the soil surface from erosion in no-till systems may reduce com yields by slowing soil warming in the spring. One way to solve this problem may be to clear residues from the seed row, while leaving the rest of the soil surface residue covered.
