Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: As the conservation tillage of the recent past becomes the conventional tillage of the day, we look to new advances to make agriculture in the southeast more competitive in the international market, less dependent on high fuel prices, and more compatible with other sectors of the economy. To maintain competition, we need to maintain quality with efficient production. To be less dependent on fuel, we need to reduce traffic and tillage. To be compatible with other sectors of our economy, we need to use water more efficiently while maintaining its quality.
