According to Chambers, farms improve their atmospheric benefits by implementing conservation practices such as reduced or no-tillage, cover crops, riparian buffers, hedgerows and more than 30 NRCS conservation practices that are "climate-smart," and can be calculated using the COMET tools.

The project offers a practice of no-tillage agriculture with keeping constant vegetation mulch on the field surface, planting wind breaking, field protecting tree lines and introduction of limited crop rotation as a way out of the existing situation.
In modern agriculture, it would be a technical challenge or an economic problem [9], research on the effect of tillage systems, conventional tillage (chisel plow) and no tillage on the yield of spring wheat cultivars under rain fall be studied And showed that the average yield in conservation tillage systems, no-tillage and conventional tillage systems was significantly higher than the performance [7], Nyborg & Mallii have reported in their study that store moisture in no-till systems: moldboard plows more [11].
