DOCUMENT INFO
Description: [...] benefits include increasing wildlife habitats, storing carbon, increasing soil organic matter, improving soil quality, preventing runoff and erosion, increasing infiltration, conserving soil water, and reducing fuel consumption. [...] because no-till can cut runoff in half, and reduce erosion by 85 to 95 percent, the value of installed conservation practices is greatly reduced. Some advantages of including cover crops in a no-till system include year-round plant material covering the soil surface; protection of the soil aftercrops with fragile residue, such as soybeans or cotton; addition of nitrogen to the soil, reducing the need for commercial fertilizer; and deep roots that help break up soil compaction and improve air and water infiltration.
