[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Problem: Soil organic matter levels have declined to about 50% oftheir
original values where wheat/fallow rotations have been practiced using
intensive tillage in the Northern Great Plains.

Findings: A field study was started in 1983 on a Dooley sandy loam
