A no-till residue management system protects the soil by using strip tillage, direct seeding and other techniques to limit soil disturbance and maximize retention of crop and plant residues.
You can tailor the amount, orientation, and distribution of crops and other plant residues to the system’s characteristics such as crop type and soil texture.
Do This If You Have
- Soil erosion
- Poor soil health and low organic matter content
- Nutrient and sediment pollution in surface and/or ground water
- Poor air quality from particulate matter such as dust
- Lack of beneficial soil (e.g., earthworms) and aboveground organisms (e.g., beetles)
