Ann C. Kennedy USDA-ARS, Department of Crop and Soil Sciences, Washington State University, Pullman, WA 991646420 No-tillage offers potential for improved soil quality, reduced erosion, and equal or increased crop yields. We hypothesized that, compared with conservation tillage (CT), no-tillage (NT) offers conditions more conducive to microbial decay of weed seed. In NT systems seed remain at or near the soil surface where crop residues, moisture, and lack of disturbance create an environment… CONTINUE READING
