The effects of various tillage treatments on soil water content


, : The effects of various tillage treatments on soil water content. Rostlinna Vyroba 36(11): 1225-1229

The effects of ploughing to 0.22 m depth, minimum tillage and direct sowing on the water content of heavy-textured chernozem were investigated in a 4 year experiment in the maize growing region of Brno, Czech Republic. Results indicated that the decrease in tillage depth increased soil water content to a depth of 0.6 m.
