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 ...
Maize production in a changing climate: Impacts, adaptation, and mitigation strategies
Plant breeding and improved management options have made remarkable progress in increasing crop yields during the past century. However, climate change projections suggest that large yield losses will be occurring in many ...
Weed dynamics and conservation agriculture principles : a review
Conservation agriculture (CA) is based on minimum soil disturbance, permanent soil cover, and crop rotation; it is promoted as a sustainable alternative to systems involving conventional tillage. Adoption of CA changes ...
Conservation agriculture, increased organic carbon in the top-soil macro-aggregates and reduced soil CO2 emissions
Background and aims: Conservation agriculture, the combination of minimal soil movement (zero or reduced tillage), crop residue retention and crop rotation, might have the potential to increase soil organic C content and ...
