Impact of crop management factors in conservation tillage farming on earthworm density, age structure and species abundance in south-eastern Australia



Impact of crop management factors in conservation tillage farming on earthworm density, age structure and species abundance in south-eastern Australia



Soil and Tillage Research 50(1): 1-10



Management practices associated with conservation tillage farming for cereals such as stubble retention and management, greater utilization of herbicides, and soil acidity amelioration were assessed for their influence on earthworm density, age structure, and species abundance at a total of seven sites on Chromic Luvisols in north-eastern Victoria, Australia.
