Packing summer fallow in the Pacific Northwest: seed zone water retention


, : Packing summer fallow in the Pacific Northwest: seed zone water retention. Journal of Soil and Water Conservation 51(1): 62-66

A 2-year field experiment was conducted during Aug. to Sep. 1990-91 at Oregon State University's Sherman Experiment Station in Moro, Oregon on a Walla Walla silt loam soil. A randomized block with 4 replications was designed with 4 treatments: bare soil ploughed not packed; bare soil ploughed and packed; stubble mulch not packed; and stubble mulch packed. The effects of packing using a roller in mid-August on seed zone water retention at the time of sowing in mid-September were assessed.
