Alternative Tillage and Cropping Strategies for Subtropical Conditions
Entry ID: USDA.ARS.SARC.IFNRRU.AltTill


Summary
Abstract: (adapted from project summary)

Problems: Subtropical growing conditions and the use of intensive
plow tillage in South Texas promotes a net loss of soil carbon and plant

Approach: Current research is evaluating several alternative
methodologies to ... View entire text
