Abstract

Row cultivation five weeks after planting significantly reduced runoff from simulated rainfall for seven of the eight tillage treatments tested. Significant reductions in nutrient loss were observed for four of the tillage treatments. The effect of cultivation on soil loss was not significant. Yields in cultivated plots were significantly higher than non-cultivated plots for one year of the three year study.
