Soil Enzyme Activities under Long-term Tillage and Crop Rotation Systems in Subtropical Agro-ecosystems

  title={Soil Enzyme Activities under Long-term Tillage and Crop Rotation Systems in Subtropical Agro-ecosystems},
  author={Elcio Liborio Balota and Miriam Kanashiro and Arnaldo Colozzi Filho and Diva S Andrade and Richard Dick},
Agricultural practices that reduce soil degradation and improve agricultural sustainability are needed particularly for tropical/subtropical soils. No-tillage planting causes minimal soil disturbance and combined with crop rotation may hold potential to meet these goals. Soil enzyme activities can provide information on how soil management is affecting the potential to perform the processes in soils such as decomposition and nutrient cycling. Soil enzyme activities were investigated in a split… CONTINUE READING
