Adoption of conservation agriculture in the Mexican Bajio
Despite demonstrated environmental and economic benefits, the adoption of conservation agriculture (CA) often remains lower than expected. Adoption of a complex and composite technology such as CA requires a thorough ...
Relative impacts of tillage, residue management and crop-rotation on soil bacterial communities in a semi-arid agroecosystem
In this study, the effect of limited tillage versus traditional tillage, residue retention versus removal and crop rotation (maize-wheat) versus monoculture (maize) on the bacterial community structure in soils was ...
Agricultura de conservación y manejo de malezas
(CIMMYT; MasAgro, 2015)
Phylogenetic and multivariate analyses to determine the effects of different tillage and residue management practices on soil bacterial communities
Bacterial communities are important not only in the cycling of organic compounds but also in maintaining ecosystems. Specific bacterial groups can be affected as a result of changes in environmental conditions caused by ...
Greenhouse gas emissions under conservation agriculture compared to traditional cultivation of maize in the central highlands of Mexico
In 1991, the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) started a field experiment in the rain fed Mexican highlands to investigate conservation agriculture (CA) as a sustainable alternative for conventional ...
