No- Tillage, Sustainable Agriculture in the New Millennium

Non sustainable use of soils

Intensive tillage leaves the soil bare and unprotected...

...and exposes the soil to climatic agents and erosion.

No-Tillage protects the soil against erosion

Special no- till planters cut through crop residues and plant into soil without ploughing or disking.

Crop residues left on the surface protect against erosion and loss of soil moisture.
