Tillage Implement Operational Effects on Residue Cover
Hanna, H. Mark
Crop residue cover protects soil from erosion caused by raindrop impact and runoff. Fall and spring season factorial field experiments indicated that operator-controlled adjustments of tool configuration, depth, and under certain conditions speed affected corn residue cover buried by a tandem disk harrow and chisel plow and soybean residue cover buried by a knife-type fertilizer applicator.
