Adoption of soil resource management and agricultural practices that seek to conserve soil and water resources and minimize environmental degradation is attracting overwhelming interest among scientists and the general public. Research data, long-term experiments and land use experience are...
Intensive monocropping of maize is widely practised in densely populated regions of west Africa. A wide range of tillage systems are used for seedbed preparation without the benefits of research information from long-term experiments relating tillage method to soil properties. Soil chemical...
Soil organic carbon concentrations (OCCs) decline when semiarid grasslands are brought under cultivation. As a result, soil aggregate size and stability may decline, which, with the decreases in OCC, may degrade soil quality and reduce crop yields. Effects of cropping systems, crop or field...
Stubble burning is widely practiced in cropping systems and is often utilised as a means of reducing stubble loads on the soil surface. However, the short-term effects of these burning regimes on soil surface properties are largely unknown. Therefore, a study was carried out at Cowra, N.S.W.,...
A wide range of tillage methods (e.g. mouldboard ploughing, discing, harrowing, chiselling, notill, ridge till, and their combinations) are used for continuous maize ( Zea mays L.) cropping in western Nigeria without the benefits of experimental data on their comparative effects on soil...
Crop sequences play an important role in changing soil properties. Knowledge of the chemical composition, turnover, dynamics and biological effects of different fractions of soil organic carbon (SOC), nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and sulfur (S) components will result in a better understanding of...
