Changes in the structure of differently tilled soil in a growing season

, : Changes in the structure of differently tilled soil in a growing season. Soil & Tillage Research 3(1): 39-46

Changes in the structure of tilled soil over a growing season were investigated. Structural data from 10 differently tilled plots were collected at the 40-50 mm depth on sectioned tilth block samples impregnated with paraffin wax. At the end of the growing season, significant increases in clod size and decreases in void size were observed. In some plots also a significant reduction in percentage of small (1-5 mm) aggregates was observed, but a crop cover (barley) increased the percentage of small aggregates.

The concentrations of both nutrients in the upper layers passed th...
