Comparison of five tillage systems for cotton production in Rahad Scheme, Sudan



Comparison of five tillage systems for cotton production in Rahad Scheme, Sudan



Agricultural Mechanization in Asia, Africa and Latin America 24(2): 17-20



Five locally used tillage systems were studied over a 2 yr period in a cotton field forming part of the Rahad agricultural scheme in Sudan. The cost of tillage operations and the effect on soil condition and crop yield were determined for a heavy duty disc harrow, chisel plough, subsoiler, disc plough and light harrow. Crop yield was not significantly affected by tillage systems but there were significant differences between profiles of soil bulk density due to tillage.
