Tillage and seeding practices and machines for crop production in semiarid areas



Tillage and seeding practices and machines for crop production in semiarid areas



FAO Agricultural Development Paper (92): 53



Following a section on the principles of arid-zone farming (general management, management for maximum water conservation and fallow systems), there are sections on types of agricultural machinery and their use in cultivation, sowing and other (fertilizer and herbicide application, harvesting) practices.
