Effect of tillage on nitrogen response in corn (Zea mays L.) after established alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.)



Effect of tillage on nitrogen response in corn (Zea mays L.) after established alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.)



Canadian Journal of Plant Science 73(1): 73-81



Maize Pioneer 3925 was grown near Woodstock, Ontario in 1988-90 after 4-5 year stands of Medicago sativa. The maize crops were given 0, 40, 80, 120 or 160 kg N/ha under no-till or conventional (ploughing) tillage systems, and the 1st and 2nd crops of maize after M. sativa were assessed. Grain yield and harvest index of 1st-year maize were lower with no-tillage than conventional tillage in 1988, while N fertilizer did not affect 1st-year maize yields in either 1988 or 1989.
