Tillage and Crop Rotation Effects on Selected Soil Chemical Properties and Wheat
The characteristic of this system is that the farmland is not ploughed after harvesting the previous crop. Ditches are excavated in rows with fixed spacing for broadcasting. The crop residues between ditches are retained and the previous crop straws or leaves or green manure are used as mulch to cover the newly planted crop. This system has the advantages of reducing soil erosion, reducing loss of organic matter and increasing crop yield.
BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICE (BMP) - CNR
No tillage combined with crop rotation and residue retention
