Performance of fall and winter crops in a no tillage system in west Parana State
(Univ Estadual Maringa, Pro-reitoria Pesquisa Pos-graduacao, 2018-01-01)
The long-term exploitation of natural resources by agricultural activities has resulted in the need for alternative measures to restore degraded soil. The cultivation of cover crops can generate great benefits for agricultural ...
Winter cover crops in soybean monoculture: Effects on soil organic carbon and its fractions
(Elsevier Science, 2016-08)
The current agricultural production systems in the Pampas Region have been significantly simplified by cultivating large land areas under no tillage (NT), where soybean is the predominant crop. These systems with long ...
Crop type influences soil aggregation and organic matter under no-tillage
(Elsevier B.V., 2014)
Brachiaria As A Cover Crop To Improve Phosphorus Use Efficiency In A No-till Oxisol
(Revista Brasileira de Ciencia do Solo, 2016)
Soil compaction management and soybean yields with cover crops under no-till and occasional chiseling
(Elsevier B.V., 2017-04-01)
The introduction of cover crops in agricultural systems under no-till is important in soil structuring and remediation. However, there is a lack of studies exploring the effects of cover crops compared with other soil ...
Improving soil fertility and crop yield in a tropical region with palisadegrass cover crops
In tropical regions with dry winters, low plant biomass accumulation during the period between spring–summer crop cultivations can negatively impact soil resources and make the no-till (NT) system unsustainable. Incorporating ...
Including cover crops during fallow periods for increasing ecosystem services: Is it possible in croplands of Southern South America?
(Elsevier Science, 2017-10)
The integration of cover crops (CC) into annual crop rotations improves the provision of multiple ecosystem services in time and represents an alternative paradigm to achieve sustainability goals. In spite of the benefits ...
Estoque de carbono e nitrogênio em solo sob sistemas de manejo e culturas de inverno
(Universidade Federal de Santa MariaBRAgronomiaUFSMPrograma de Pós-Graduação em Ciência do Solo, 2015-03-11)
Soil organic matter (SOM) constitutes the largest reservoir of carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) of the earth's surface. In agricultural soils, the organic fraction is of great importance in maintaining soil quality, while ...
Winter mulches and chemical control on weeds in maize
(Univ Federal Ceara, Dept Geol, 2016-10-01)
The correct choice of cover crops improves the sustainability of a farming system, as it can enhance the use of herbicides, reduce weed infestation and improve crop performance. With the aim of studying the effect of winter ...
Soil carbon as affected by cover crops under no-till under tropical climate
In tropical, low-fertility soils, crop yields are dependent on soil carbon, and cropping systems under no-till can increase soil C stocks. Plant residues supplied by cover crops in no-till systems may improve aggregate ...
