ASABE member Dinku Endale, an agricultural engineer with the USDA-ARS, and his colleagues ASABE member David Bosch, Thomas Potter, and Timothy Strickland compared surface runoff and sediment losses from two common tillage systems between 2000 and 2009, including years with severe drought and heavy rainfall.
