Abstract

Crop residue cover protects soil from erosion caused by raindrop impact and runoff. Fall and spring season factorial field experiments indicated that operator-controlled adjustments of tool configuration, depth, and under certain conditions speed affected corn residue cover buried by a tandem disk harrow and chisel plow and soybean residue cover buried by a knife-type fertilizer applicator.
