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 ...
Evaluation of three field-based methods for quantifying soil carbon
(Public Library of Science, 2013)
Three advanced technologies to measure soil carbon (C) density (g C m−2) are deployed in the field and the results compared against those obtained by the dry combustion (DC) method. The advanced methods are: a) Laser ...
Insights into genotype × tillage interaction effects on the grain yield of wheat and maize
No tillage or zero tillage (NT) is the extreme form of reduced tillage; NT with residue retention is a main component of conservation agriculture. Using a literature survey and meta-analysis, this study aimed to (i) summarize ...
