Conservation agriculture and soil carbon sequestration: between myth and farmer reality
Improving food security, environmental preservation and enhancing livelihood should be the main targets of the innovators of today's farming systems. Conservation agriculture (CA), based on minimum tillage, crop residue ...
Wheat yield and tillage-straw management system year interaction explained by climatic co-variables for an irrigated bed planting system in northwestern Mexico
Wheat is an important food and income source and estimated demand for wheat in the developing world is projected to increase substantially. The objectives of this study were to gain insight into (i) the effect of tillage?straw ...
Conservation agriculture for wheat-based cropping systems under gravity irrigation: increasing resilience through improved soil quality
A field experiment was conducted under furrow irrigation on a Vertisol in arid northwestern Mexico, to evaluate sustainable production alternatives for irrigated wheat systems. Treatments included: tillage (conventionally ...
Soil water content, maize yield and its stability as affected by tillage and crop residue management in rainfed semi-arid highlands
Rainfed crop management systems need to be optimized to provide more resilient options to cope with projected climatic scenarios forecasting a decrease in mean precipitation and more frequent extreme drought periods in ...
Using NDVI and soil quality analysis to assess influence of agronomic management on within-plot spatial variability and factors limiting production
Crop growth and yield are the result of the efficiency of the chosen agricultural management system within the boundaries of the agro-ecological environment. Linking spatial variability in crop performance to differences ...
Evaluating spatial within plot crop variability for different management practices with an optical sensor?
It is essential to have an indication of the sustainability of an agricultural system in addition to the potential, immediate benefits well before the catastrophic consequences of non-sustainability become apparent. Long-term ...
Soil quality as affected by tillage-residue management in a wheat-maize irrigated bed planting system
There is a clear need to develop conservation agriculture technologies appropriate for surface irrigated conditions, and the adoption by small-scale farmers. The objective of this paper is to evaluate the effect on soil ...
