Long-term consequences of tillage residue management and crop rotation on maize wheat root rot and nematode populations in subtropical highlands
Densely populated and intensively cropped, the subtropical highlands of the world have severe agricultural sustainability problems resulting from soil erosion and fertility decline. In 1991, the International Maize and ...
Long-term consequences of tillage, residue management, and crop rotation on selected soil micro-flora groups in the subtropical highlands
Densely populated and intensively cropped, the subtropical highlands of the world have agricultural sustainability problems resulting from soil erosion and fertility decline. In 1991, the International Maize andWheat ...
Conservation agriculture as a sustainable option for the central Mexican highlands
Tropical highlands of the world are densely populated and intensively cropped. Agricultural sustainability problems resulting from soil erosion and fertility decline have arisen all over this agro-ecological zone. Based ...
NIR spectroscopy: An alternative for soil analysis
Advances in laboratory instrumentation and chemometrics provide alternatives to traditional methods of conducting soil chemical analysis. One of these is infrared diffuse reflectance spectroscopy in the near-infrared ...
Conservation agriculture in maize- and wheat-based systems in the (Sub)tropics: Lessons from adaptation initiatives in South Asia, Mexico, and Southern Africa
Conservation agriculture's underlying principles—minimal soil disturbance, soil cover and crop rotation—are increasingly recognized as essential for sustainable agriculture. This article summarizes three contrasting cases ...
Earthworm activity and soil structural changes under conservation agriculture in central Mexico
Crop residue mulching combined with zero tillage and crop rotation, known as conservation agriculture (CA), is being promoted as an alternative system to revert soil degradation in maize-based farming in the central highlands ...
