Zoned tillage in potato production

, : Zoned tillage in potato production. Paper American Society of Agricultural Engineers ( 92-1562): 6 pp.

Zoned tillage is a practice of tilling under the row of planted potato seed pieces. Experimental results indicate that such tillage can improve water use efficiency and tuber size and quality under some plant stress conditions, though late application can harm plant roots.
