    Nitrogen and Tillage Effects on Wheat Leaf Spot Diseases in the Northern Great Plains J. M. Krupinsky,* A. D. Halvorson, D. L. Tanaka, and S. D. Merrill ABSTRACT There is a need for management practices in cropping systems that can reduce the impact of plant diseases. Leaf spot diseases on wheatCited by: Tillage systems are often classified by the amount of surface residue left on the soil surface. Conservation tillage systems leave more than 30% of the soil surface covered with crop residue. This amount of surface residue cover is considered to be at a level where erosion is significantly reduced (see figure ). Of course, this residue.

      It’s amazing to see how far western Canadian agriculture has come. Forty-five years ago, conservation tillage was unknown, save for a few forward-thinking research scientists and concerned farmers. In , a world wheat glut had wheat prices low and federal agricultural initiatives produced Lower Inventories for Tomorrow (LIFT) where farmers were paid to keep . The Colorado Conservation Tillage Association is a non-profit (C5) organization whose mission is to serve the conservation and no-till farmers of the High Plains by providing a system which drastically reduces soil erosion, conserves soil moisture and builds organic matter.

    Economics of tillage practices and spring wheat and barley crop sequence in the Northern Great Plains J.K. Aase and G.M. Schaefer ABSTRACT Our objective was to analyze economics of spring wheat (Trine= aestivum L.) and barley (Hordeurn vulgate L.) cropping and tillage practices after 10 years of evaluation. We. The Great Plains Max-Chisel is an aggressive primary tillage tool that works at a shallower depth and leaves fields smoother and more uniform than most traditional disk rippers. Built on the same rugged platform as the Great Plains Turbo-Chisel®, the Max-Chisel utilizes two opposing rows of exclusive concave turbo-wave blades.

In conservation tillage, some (>30%) of the crop residue is left on the land. With the industry’s most accurate and dependable seed delivery system, our compact drill line delivers solutions for a wide variety of applications. We are the seed placement specialists. Our drills are designed to maximize yield with exceptional seed spacing, seed depth, and seed-to-soil contact.

Great Plains announces exciting new updates that make the industry-leading Turbo-Max even better. New standard features and controls allow you to adjust and. Conservation tillage systems alter pest dynamics, due in large part to residues left on the soil surface. Conservation tillage systems with surface residues create a more diverse plant/soil ecosystem than conventional tillage systems (,).

Cover crops may harbor insects, diseases, and nematodes that could be harmful to the cash crop. Our objective was to analyze economics of spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) cropping and tillage practices after 10 years of evaluation.

The reduced tillage and increased cropping intensity could conserve C and N in a dryland soil; and crop residues better than the traditional conventional tillage with wheat- fallow system in northern Great Plains (Sainju et al., ).

Water Conservation in Fallow Tillage Systems: Dryland fallow systems are practiced in the High Plains of the western USA where two wheat crops are grown in three cropping season.

During the lengthy fallow period ((14 mo.) soil is managed for weed control, water harvest, snow capture and wind erosion protection. Rice-wheat cropping system (RWCS) occupies ~ M ha in Indo-Gangetic plains (IGPs) of South Asia and feeds ~20% of the global population.

While the recent reduction in acreage has been interpreted by many as a rejection of winter wheat by Saskatchewan producers, it was not unexpected. versions of a chisel plough, was started in the Great Plains of the United States in the s to alleviate wind erosion after the occurrence of the famous “Dust Bowl.” Stubble mulch farming was developed, and can be seen as a forerunner of no-tillage.

Since our inception, Great Plains has become a leader in the manufacturing of agricultural implements for tillage, seeding, and planting in the United States, as well as a leading producer of dirtworking, turf.

In this paper, we summarize efforts to develop long-term, conservation-tillage systems in organically managed environments and how these practices impact the soil biological community and discuss how successful adoption of conservation-tillage practices by organic farmers may revolutionize organic farming in the US Great Plains and similar Author: Shabeg S.
