Residue and Tillage Management
Summary of changes
Maintaining crop and other plant residue on the soil surface year‐round and limiting soil disturbing activities to protect water quality. Residue and tillage management also provides seasonal soil protection from wind and rain erosion, adds organic matter to the soil, conserves soil moisture, and improves infiltration, aeration and tilth. Benefits may include reduction in soil erosion, sedimentation and pollution from sediment attached substances.
