Contribution of macroporosity to infiltration into a continuous corn no-tilled watershed: implications for contaminant movement

Contribution of macroporosity to infiltration into a continuous corn no-tilled watershed: implications for contaminant movement

Journal of Contaminant Hydrology 3(2-4): 193-205

Rainfall and runoff were measured for many years on small watersheds on 10-15% slopes in east-central Ohio. Surface runoff from watersheds used for maize (Zea mays) production was high with conventional tillage and very low with no-tillage. A 1 in 50-year storm produced 15 times more runoff from a ploughed watershed than from a mulch-covered no-till watershed.
