Description

Numerous tillage studies have been conducted in Iowa, the Midwest, and throughout the U.S. with a wide range of results. The tillage system that results in the highest yield depends on several factors including soil type and weather during the study Generally, systems with little soil disturbance are favored on coarser textured soils and/or in drier years (Eckert 1987; Beyaert et al 2002). For soil and water conservation purposes, as well as for economic reasons, extending successful use of no-till or similar systems to finer textured soils seems advantageous.

Strip Till, No-Till and Conventional Tillage Comparisons - Does Planting Date Affect Results?
