Linking soil and water quality in conservation agricultural systems

  title={Linking soil and water quality in conservation agricultural systems},
  author={Alan Joseph Franzluebbers},
Conservation agricultural systems (i.e., conservation tillage, cover crops, and pastures) that have high surface-soil organic C are highly effective in improving surface soil properties and processes, thus reducing water runoff and soil erosion and improving water quality. Literature was reviewed to document the important linkage that surface soil organic matter has on soil and water quality. Soil organic matter is a key property that drives many important soil functions, e.g. supplying and… CONTINUE READING
