No-till? No Erosion!

By PSU EcoMerge Capstone - 1:57 AM


The U.S. Department of Agriculture has conducted a study on the effects of no-till farming. The findings suggest that by performing this, the soil will be more stable and have less erosion than plowed soil. Research also showed that more carbon is stored in the soil when the land is no-till.

While previous blogs postings on this site have explained what no-till farming is, this is the first study to explain the benefits of this type of farming.
