Effect of rainfall on the roughness of the soil surface and infiltration of water in soils under two tillage systems



Effect of rainfall on the roughness of the soil surface and infiltration of water in soils under two tillage systems



Agricultura Tecnica en Mexico 22(1): 3-19



The objective of the present study conducted in a state in the arid region of the San Luis Potosi-Zacatecas highlands, Mexico, was to evaluate quantitatively the effect of the kinetic energy of simulated rainfall on surface roughness and water infiltration of a eutric Cambisol soil under two tillage systems. The tillage systems studied were: plowing plus disking, or traditional tillage (TT), and Zero tillage (ZT).
