Effect of tillage and residue management on maize and wheat yield and on physical properties of an irrigated sandy loam soil in northern Nigeria


Soil and Tillage Research 8: 161-170
Effect of tillage and residue management on maize and wheat yield and on physical properties of an irrigated sandy loam soil in northern Nigeria
This paper was presented at the 10th ISTRO conference on 'Reduced tillage - rational use in sustained production', held on 8-12 July, 1985 at Guelph, Canada. Maize (June-Sep.) and wheat (Nov.-Mar.) were rotated for a 4-year period on an irrigated sandy loam soil in Nigeria. When no-tillage plots were compared with conventionally tilled plots, there was a significant difference in the physical properties of the soil.
