Abstract

Simulated rainfall was applied to corn and soybeans planted in rotation by 5 tillage systems on the contour and up-and-down hill. The greatest runoff and soil loss was usually observed from up-and-down hill moldboard tillage. Significant reductions in runoff were observed from strip-till and contoured ridge-till. The effect of contouring on soil loss was influenced by tillage system and previous crop.
