Residue and Rotation in a Small Grain Pulse and Brassica Cropping System
Managing crop residue to give adequate ground cover to reduce erosion. Pea and lentil crops must be grown in previous crop residue to carry over residue when seeding a following wheat crop. Tillage must be minimal or not done. Broadleaf crops are very beneficial in rotation with cereals. The purpose of this study is to define production technologies that enhance residue ground cover in legume and cereal systems.
