Effect of conservation tillage on moisture conservation, soil-physical conditions, seedling emergence and grain yield of rainfed maize (Zea mays) and wheat (Triticum aestivum)






Indian Journal of Agricultural Sciences 67(6): 227-231

Effect of conservation tillage on moisture conservation, soil-physical conditions, seedling emergence and grain yield of rainfed maize (Zea mays) and wheat (Triticum aestivum)

In a field experiment in 1992-95 at Palampur, Himachal Pradesh, 6 conservation tillage treatments were compared in a maize-wheat cropping sequence.
