Conservation Tillage - Equipment 89 Specialized equipment for ridge-till • All traffic is confined to the same rows but compaction can result • Between row subsoilers can alleviate this compaction if done when soils are dry • Fertilizer and manure application equipment is the same as discussed under No-till except for preservation of the ridge.

Introduction No-tillage crop production has been increasing in the United States. adoption of non-inversion deep tillage has been recommended to disrupt compacted soil layers and create an adequate medium for crop development. In spite of its efficacy, increased fuel prices could.

Residue impacts on runoff and soil erosion for different corn plant populations G.V. Wilsona,*, K.C. McGregorb, D.

Chisel implements generally provide results similar to those of the moldboard plow but require less energy and leave significantly more residue on the surface. Chisels also allow for more flexibility in the depth of tillage, generally from 5 to 12 inches, with some tools specifically designed to go deeper.   Crop farms facing higher drought risk were more likely to be enrolled in EQIP contracts with conservation tillage practices. And crop producers who utilize conservation tillage were often able to improve the capture and storage of soil moisture, which provides their crops an important buffer against drought impacts. bility and need of the land, otherwise both the machines and the land are likely to suffer., It IS on these premises that modern soil conservation has been planned and developed. Its ultimate objective is to achieve a sustained-yield type of agriculture based on principles and practices that will protect and im-.

"Reducing tillage and increasing soil cover can enhance soil health. Conservation tillage,particularly no-till or strip-till, used in conjunction with soil cover practices can lead to a range of soil health benefits: improved agricultural productivity, greater drought resilience, and better environmental outcomes.
