The effects of minimum cultivation after three years on some physical and chemical properties of a red-brown earth at Forbes, N.S.W


, : The effects of minimum cultivation after three years on some physical and chemical properties of a red-brown earth at Forbes, N.S.W. Australian Journal of Soil Research 29(2): 263-270

A trial was set up in 1986 on a red-brown earth near Forbes, New South Wales, Australia, comparing direct-drilling and conventional-cultivation crop establishment techniques. The surface soil (0-100 mm) was sampled at the end of the third year and assessed for macropore structure, infiltration characteristics, bulk density, pH, electrolytic conductivity, organic carbon and total nitrogen content.
