No-tillage is a soil management practice that helps to reduce soil disturbance, allowing for the accumulation of crop residues on the soil surface, and can increase the soil aggregate stability (Calonego and Rosolem 2008; Blanco-Canqui et al.
Among management systems, no-tillage (NT) is reported as a conservationist method with advantages over conventional tillage (CT), as the soil structure is improved by increasing the water retention (Bescansa et al.
2004a) reported that thousand seed weight and grain yield was higher in the CT than no-tillage for chickpea.
Louis marked the silver anniversary of Lessiter Media's National No-Tillage Conference--an educational event for farmers practicing conservational tillage practices that has drawn more than 19,000 in total attendance since 1993.
No-tillage system (NTS) is defined as a complex of technological processes for agricultural production systems where soil mobilization occurs only in the sowing line, maintenance of soil cover and plant species diversification, through rotation and/or intercropping cultures (DENARDIN et al.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the behavior of chemical properties and crop yields during five years after liming, in a consolidated no-tillage system area and indicate a base saturation index to serve as a criterion for recommendation.
Therefore, the development of technologies that conserve water, such as growing rice under aerobic conditions in a no-tillage system (NTS) instead of flooding (Nascente et al.
