Conservation Tillage "Any tillage and planting system that covers [an area of] soil surface with crop residue, after planting, to reduce soil erosion Two key factors influencing crop residue are (1) the type of crop, which establishes the initial residue amount and its fragility, and (2) the type of tillage operations prior to and including.

On Wednesday, the USDA’s Economic Research Service (ERS) released a report titled, “Tillage Intensity and Conservation Cropping in the United States,” which discussed regional and crop conservation tillage practices, as well as adoption of residue and cover practices.
Today’s update highlights a few aspects of the report. The ERS report, which was. The book takes an agricultural systems approach to understanding conservation tillage systems, recognizing that the different components of conservation tillage systems are interrelated.
It includes chapters on the management of cover crops, water, nutrients, weeds, insect pests and nematodes, as well as crop selection and rotation, livestock integration and .Conservation tillage is part of a system of crop production designed to minimize soil disturbance, maintain previous crop residue on or near the soil surface and minimize the number of field operations.
Weeds primarily are controlled with herbicides and fertilizers are applied in ways that minimize soil disturbance. Conservation tillage seeding equipment often is designed as a .Conservation agriculture (CA), practising agriculture in such a way so as to cause minimum damage to the environment, is being advocated at a large scale world-wide.
Conservation tillage, the most important aspect of CA, is thought to take care of the soil health, plant growth and the by:
