Minimum Tillage Vegetable Crop Production in California
Minimum Tillage Vegetable Crop Production in California
Minimum Tillage Vegetable Crop Production in California
Tillage operations in vegetable production represent time, energy, equipment, and labor that can make up more than 25% of preharvest production costs. Reduced-tillage systems have been developed to control costs and optimize soil management.

Conservation Tillage and Weed Management
"Conservation tillage" is an approach to soil management that balances the short-term need for a profitable crop with the long-term need for sustainably healthy ground. This publication looks at ways to control weeds while practicing conservation tillage.
