Conservation tillage for sustainable crop production: Results and experiences from on-station and on-farm research in natural region II (1988-1996)



Conservation tillage for sustainable crop production: Results and experiences from on-station and on-farm research in natural region II (1988-1996)



Zimbabwe Science News 31(2): 27-33



Data from field experiments in Zimbabwe in 1988-96 comparing 5 tillage practices in maize are presented. The tillage practices were conventional ploughing, no-till tied ridging, clean ripping into bare ground, mulch ripping into stover mulch on the surface or hand hoeing.
