Growing maize by the no-tillage method for reduced manpower and energy consumption

Growing maize by the no-tillage method for reduced manpower and energy consumption

Analele Institutului de Cercetari pentru Cereale si Plante Tehnice, Fundulea 47: 195-202

Results from 13-year studies using atrazine at 5, 10 and 20 kg/ha show that growing maize by no-tillage methods is promising in Romania. Mean 13-yr. yields showed increases of 0-11% compared with the use of conventional techniques, this being accompanied by a substantial reduction in the use of fuel (10.5 l/ha compared with 52.2 l/ha) and increased manpower productivity.
