Long-Term Outcomes of Direct Drilling on Soil Properties & Weed Populations

Seminar Tent

NIAB has been investigating the changes in soil properties and weed populations under contrasting tillage management for over ten years. This gives a unique opportunity to discuss the changes observed when a high clay content soil is put under no-till management, in comparison to continuing the practice of high intensity tillage operations. We will discuss the results of this long-standing project in full, and how they have improved our understanding of no-till in UK agriculture.
