Abstract

This article discusses a study of winter wheat production on a silt loam soil in the southern Great Plains, spanning from 1983 to 1991, which compared the cumulative effects of three tillage and residue practices. No-till soil had greater water content, lower bulk density, and greater water-holding capacity; greater water infiltration; and under ponding conditions, recharge through macropores to .4 to .6 meters depth.
