Semiarid regions have low capacity to sequester carbon (C) but due to the large extent of such areas, the total capacity may be important. Tillage methods and crop rotations are practices relevant to C sequestration. Field experiments were carried...

The potential of crop residue fertilization as a carbon sequestration technology was evaluated in a central Ohio Luvisol (fine, mixed, mesic Aeric Ochraqualf). Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) straw was applied at three rates (bare: 0; low: 8 Mg; and...

Enhancement of soil organic carbon (SOC) stocks through mulching has been proposed, and although this practice can alter several soil properties, its impact on the temporal variability of carbon dioxide (CO<sub>2</sub>) emission from s...

Long-term use of conventional tillage and wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)-fallow systems in the northern Great Plains have resulted in low soil organic carbon (SOC) levels. We examined the effects of two tillage practices [conventional till (CT) and...

Dao, Thanh H., 1998: Tillage and crop residue effects on carbon dioxide evolution and carbon storage in a paleustoll. Cultivation, high temperatures, and a semiarid climate accelerate organic carbon (OC) loss and weaken soil structure in the Southern plains. Our hypothesis was that differences in soil C storage attributable to tillage method are related to differ...

Soil C change and CO2 emission due to different tillage systems need to be evaluated to encourage the adoption of conservation practices to sustain soil productivity and protect the environment. We hypothesize that soil C storage and CO2 emission...
