Soil Organic Matter Dynamics in Dryland Cropping Systems in the Central Great Plains
Entry ID: USDA.ARS.CGPRS.OMDryland


Summary
Abstract: Problem: Soil organic matter (SOM) is important to hoid the soil
together, eaSily ihfiitrate water, reduce compaction, and to provide
nutrients such as N, P,K, S, and micronutrienis. However, the
conversion of the Great Plains grasslands to clean-till small grain
farmlands since the mid 19th century has resulted in extensive loss
ofnative SOM because of wind erosion and accelerated decomposition. ... View entire text
