Abstract

The purpose of this study was to assess how minimum tillage (chisel plow and disking) and zero tillage, with and without nitrogen fertilization, affect soil temperature, compaction, soil water storage, and crop yields. The two tillage systems were evaluated on a productive soil in the southeastern region of the Buenos Aires province, Argentina.
