DRYLAND REDUCED TILLAGE/NO TILLAGE CROPPING SEQUENCES FOR THE TEXAS SOUTH PLAINS

Calvin L. Trostle and Wayne Keeling, Texas AgriLife Extension Service

Most in the agricultural community (including farmers) acknowledge bare soil can lead to land degradation through erosion from wind and water. Past studies to limit tillage in the Texas South Plains have not been successful as the sandy soils in the region will likely require a significant time period of reduced tillage before the benefits of new practices have practical value to the producer. Therefore, it is important to establish a long-term plot study to determine if the ultimate benefits are worth the wait.
