This paper presents a study of determining factors and a method to predict the existence of gully erosion in vineyard parcels. The Alt Penedès-Anoia region (Catalonia, NE Spain), mainly dedicated to the cropping of vineyards for high quality wine production, was selected as the case study area....
Environmental as well as economic incentives support the use of integrated weed management (IWM) systems for crop production. In order to reduce the input of agrochemicals for weed control, it may be possible to combine reduced doses of herbicides with appropriate tillage strategies and still...
Simple tests of structural stability are needed for evaluating the ease with which soils slake and erode when in contact with water. In a laboratory study, we related the percolation stability (PS) of 22 Nigerian soils to land use, soil properties, structural stability indices and simulated...
Crop residues from millet production in southwest Niger are limited for their utilization as mulch because of many other uses. Thus, branches of an indigenous shrub ( Guiera senegalensis J.F. Gmel.) were tested with a randomised block design for their effect on millet ( Pennisetum glaucum L.)...
Cracking due to soil shrinkage is a complex process whose effect on soil properties, crop growth and water quality are not adequately understood. The intensity of cracking depends on soil characteristics and management. The effect of three axle loads and three tillage methods on shrinkage...
The soils in the Abakaliki agro-ecological region of southeastern Nigeria are plagued with characteristics that impede optimal soil water conditions. Four rates (12.5, 25.0, 37.5 and 50.0 Mg ha −1 ) of fresh (FW) and burnt (BW) rice-mill wastes were incorporated in a typic haplustult planted...
Evaluation of computer models with field data is required before they can be effectively used for predicting agricultural management systems. A study was conducted to evaluate tillage effects on the movement of water and nitrate–nitrogen (NO 3 –N) in the root zone under continuous corn ( Zea...
Soil characteristics are some of the most important inputs in crop simulation models like CERES-Maize and MACROS models under field conditions. A sensitivity analysis of these models was carried out for 1995 and 1996 by incorporating changes (+2, +4, +6, −2, −4, and −6%) of the measured...
Sustainability of agricultural management systems has become an issue of wide public concern and international debate. One result is that soil quality assessment has been suggested as a tool for evaluating sustainability of soil and crop management practices. Our objective was to adapt a soil...
Correct evaluation and forecasting of durability of soil cutting parts are the decisive factors for proper operation of agricultural machinery. During operation of cultivators, over two-fold difference in wear of cultivator points is observed, which makes establishing of their exchange periods...
