Reducing turnaround time and cost of production by zero and minimum tillage in intensive rice cropping systems

Reducing turnaround time and cost of production by zero and minimum tillage in intensive rice cropping systems

International Rice Research Newsletter 5(2): 22

At Salna in the autumn of 1979, aus rice was grown in farmers' fields under irrigated conditions after a boro rice crop; the aus crop was given (a) no tillage, (b) min. tillage, (c) high tillage or (d) traditional tillage. Grain yield was not significantly affected by tillage practices but (a) was the most economic.
