Technical Abstract: Crop rotation should be arranged in the sequence that permits the fewest tillage operations for the complete cropping cycle. Such an arrangement has significantly lower tillage input costs, and research has shown that crop yield and quality from this type of crop sequence is as good or better than for traditional cropping sequences with traditional tillage. Therefore, the money saved by doing fewer tillage operations translates into greater profits with the conservation tillage cropping systems.
