This paper discusses two separate field studies of residue management, one a cotton crop in semi-arid Lubbock, Texas and the other a corn-soybean system in humid central Iowa. During the early vegetative stage, measures of plant growth, soil water, and microclimatic variables were taken, comparing stubble treatments with bare soil.
