Experiences with reduced tillage in the Netherlands

Experiences with reduced tillage in the Netherlands

EUR Report (EUR 11258): 41-54

In the Netherlands, farms are generally small, which makes intensive crop rotations necessary with high proportion of root crops. For these crops, fairly deep primary tillage is required to ensure an acceptable level of soil structure throughout the year. Therefore, in practice reduced tillage is not widespread. Research conducted in the period 1968-1979 showed that for Dutch conditions zero-tillage is not feasible, whereas reduced tillage may have variable results.
