Abstract

Sustainable intensification of conservation agricultural practices can improve crop productivity and soil health. These practices will help farmers to adapt their crop production systems to future changing climates and minimize carbon and water foot print. Objectives of this research were to evaluate influence of tillage practices (conventional, minimum tillage and no tillage), fertilizer management, and soil and water harvesting techniques on grain yield of maize and soybean in different cropping systems under on-farm conditions in upper west region of Ghana.
