No-tillage significantly increased soil N 2 O emission at the highest N-fertilizer rate. Denitrification was the main pathway under no-tillage for N 2 O emission.

The use kg N ha −1 reduced the yield-scaled N 2 O emissions in the first out of three years. The emission factor was much lower than 1% By adopting the no-tillage system, Derpsch () estimated that Brazil increased its grain production by million tons in 15 years with additional revenue of 10 billion dollars.

The book goes on to list 14 different names for reduced tillage along In the s more detailed investigations were conducted on direct drilling of crops (Baker,Dixon ).

Intensive research on no-tillage has continued at Massey University until the present. In the book "No-tillage seeding" (Baker et al., ), many references of research on direct drilling carried out in New Zealand are The environmental consequences of residue removal practices to support cellulosic biofuel production remain poorly understood.

Most of the state’s wheat is produced in 15 central and eastern Washington counties. Acre per acre, no state can match Washington’s abundant wheat production. The state’s wheat farms produce less than half the amount of grain that No.

This system has evolved and proven to be economically successful for more than years. However, tillage based fallow leads to increased soil erosion and adversely affects soil biological, chemical and physical properties and increased cost for inputs is In the present paper, we review 4 topics that were identified through extensive consultation with stakeholders as issues of high impact and influence for the grains industry: improving soil testing and interpretation; role of fluid fertilisers in the Western Australian (WA) grains industry; using spatial and temporal information to improve crop nutrient management, particularly for nitrogen To consider resilience, we focused on “production” resilience by calculating the temporal stability of grain yields within a grid cell for each technology over the 20‐year sequence of weather under no climate change, expressed as standard deviation divided by the average yield over the same years 11 Section S1 in the Supporting   scope of the project is eastern Washington and north central Idaho.

To provide a cross-section of growers, fifteen growers were interviewed, twelve in Washington and three in Idaho.

The advent of new hybrid and all-male asparagus varieties is another major change.

Many of these new varieties are being tested by researchers and growers in the Northwest, The cost tradeoffs coupled with direct seed grain yields result in similar economic returns in the intermediate zone of eastern Washington (Esser and Jones, ) and the drier grain-fallow regions of eastern Oregon (Machado et al., ) when compared to yields obtained with conventional ://   These systems included conventional tillage (CT), no-tillage grain production with corn (Zea mays L.) residue (NTG), and no-tillage silage production without residue (INTS).

The purpose of this research is to improve understanding of conservation tillage adoption decisions by identifying key biophysical and socio-economic factors influencing no-till adoption by grain growers across four Australian cropping regions.

The study is based on interviews with grain growers using a questionnaire aimed at eliciting perceptions relating to a range of Nitrous oxide (N 2 O) is a potent greenhouse gas that can result in nitrogen loss from the soil. The scientific literature is deficient in studies that measure N 2 O emissions, NO 3 leaching, and crop performance across multiple sources of nitrogen fertilizer and changes in field practices.
