Basin tillage - a review

: Basin tillage - a review. Extension and techniques for land and water management for crop production in the semi arid environment with application for the low resource level communal farmer SADC LandWMRP workshop held at Harare, Zimbabwe, 22-26 February 1993: C48-53

Basin tillage (tied ridging) is a soil management practice, aimed at conserving water, where mounds of soil are built at regular intervals across the furrow to form small basins. Alternatively, basins can be formed by scooping out soil between the crop rows ('pot holes'). The effects of basin tillage on soil moisture, soil conservation and crop yield are reviewed. Basin tillage was shown to reduce runoff and to increase soil moisture content and available water in the root zone.

In 1996, the current investigators ascribed the disease in families linked to the LCA1 locus on chromosome 17p13.1 to mutation...
