The effect of conservation tillage on soil physical properties on sandy loam soil



The effect of conservation tillage on soil physical properties on sandy loam soil



Collection of Scientific Papers, Faculty of Agriculture in Ceske Budejovice Series for Crop Sciences 23(1): 11-19



The seasonal changes in bulk density (BD), soil moisture and penetration resistance (PR) of a soil profile under conservation tillage (mulch till - MT) compared to conventional tillage (mouldboard plough - MP) was determined. After 4 years of MT, there was no steady increase of BD in any of the layers of the soil profile. Better moisture conditions were observed in MT plots during autumn and spring. Increased values of PR under MT were mostly observed in depths from 0.12 m to 0.28 m.
