Effect of row orientation and mulching on soil temperature and moisture regimes



Effect of row orientation and mulching on soil temperature and moisture regimes



Turkish Journal of Agriculture and Forestry 20(4): 319-325



In a field experiment in 1987 on a silt loam Alfisol in Columbus, Ohio, USA, maize Dekalb XL-71 was sown in N./S. or E./W. rows or with equal distance spacing, with or without wheat straw as a mulch. E./W. rows and unmulched plots had the highest soil temperatures and lowest moisture contents. N./S. rows and equal distance spacing produced 12.5% and 3.7% more grain than the E./W. rows.
