Managing Residue for a Good StandIntegrated Crop Management News
AbstractManaging corn residue, particularly with no-till system in highly productive and wet soils present a significant challenge to establish corn stands in such environment. One of the biggest advantages of this system is that it leaves significant amounts of crop residue on the soil surface, which protects the soil from water erosion and improves soil tilth. Conversely, these significant amounts of residue pose a challenge of their own: Managing residue as a part of a no-till system.
