Long-term Tillage and Cropping System Effects on Crop Yield and Soil Quality
Entry ID: USDA.ARS.CPCRC.CropSyst

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: (adapted from Project Abstract)

Problem: Many of the present cropping systems in the steeply-sloping
Pacific Northwest dryland region are detrimental to soil quality
because of excessive soil erosion and loss of soil organic
matter. Soil that is losing soil organic matter is not biologically or
economically sustainable. Conventional systems that include summer
fallow, while they normally improve ... View entire text
