Contributions to elaborating some methods of soil tillage for reducing energy consumption by the maize crop



Contributions to elaborating some methods of soil tillage for reducing energy consumption by the maize crop



Analele Institutului de Cercetari pentru Cereale si Plante Tehnice, Fundulea 51: 229-241



Tillage conditions favourable for min. energy consumption in maize were investigated in 1980-82. Ground was prepared by discing or ploughing to 25 cm; seedbed preparation included pre-em. application of 6 l Sutan 2 kg Pitezin or 1.6 l Icedin ha with or without hoeing, or 3 hoeings + 1 hand weeding. The 3 year rotation on brown podzol consisted of maize/maize/winter wheat. Economic efficiency was greatest with ploughing every 1-2 years, alternated with discing.
