Effects of No-Tillage Production Practices on Crop Yields as Influenced by Crop and Growing Environment Factors
AbstractThis paper evaluated differences between yields of no-tillage compared to conventional or reduced tillage and their associated downside risk. Six crops were evaluated along with how those yields and risks differed by various environmental factors such geographic location, precipitation, soil type and how long the practice had been used.
