Impact of conservation agriculture on catchment runoff and soil loss under changing climate conditions in May Zeg-zeg (Ethiopia)
This study evaluates the practice of conservation agriculture (CA) in the May Zeg-zeg catchment (MZZ; 187 ha) in the North Ethiopian Highlands as a soil management technique for reducing soil loss and runoff, and assesses ...
Bacterial diversity as affected by tillage practice in a raised bed planting system
Carbon and nitrogen dynamics are altered by tillage so it was hypothesized that the composition of the microbial population that control these processes was affected too. Soil was sampled from conventional beds (CB) tilled ...
Organic carbon and stable 13C isotope in conservation agriculture and conventional systems
Conservation agriculture might have the potential to increase soil organic C content compared to conventional tillage based systems. The present study quantified soil organic carbon (SOC) and soil C derived from C3 (wheat) ...
Microbial biomass C measurements in soil of the central highlands of Mexico
Microbial biomass is the key factor in nutrient dynamics in soil, but no information exist about it in soils of the central highlandsof Mexico, a major agricultural area.We determined the microbial biomass in soils with a ...
