On January 5, 2012, two experiments were installed with upland rice; the first one in a subsoiled area and the second one in a non-subsoiled area.
Thus, the fertility and soil strength data suggest somewhat better soil fertility for the surface no-tillage plots and somewhat better rooting conditions for the subsoiled treatments.
For those plots that were subsoiled, there was no significant difference in yields between the continually disked and longterm no surface tillage treatments, 4.92 and 4.98 Mg [ha.sup.-1], respectively (Table 4).
