Conservation or conventional tillage? A report on alternative crop management practices under high rainfall



Conservation or conventional tillage? A report on alternative crop management practices under high rainfall



Natural Resource Management 4(2): 9-15



This paper compares, at a paddock scale, conservation and conventional tillage methods with different crop rotations on sodic cracking clays after three seasons of above average rainfall in New South Wales, Australia. Observed management systems were: (1) conventionally tilled wheat crop; (2) wheat crop under conservation farming; (3) wheat crop under conservation farming; and (4) uncultivated paddock with pre-clearing vegetation.
