Title: Variety Performance Under Reduced Tillage Systems
Author: Thompson, Curtis R.
Description: No-till, also know as direct drill, zero, reduced or minimum tillage, is a cropping system with much appeal, especially for the conservation of soil. the no-till method from almost no acres treated in this manner in 1977 to 654.000 acres in 1985 receiving no-till. With the increase came greater interest in such. As a result, more research data was needed in all aspects of production. This article reports on variety and tillage interaction results at the North central Experiment Station near Minot North Dakota. The methods are presented. Following is the results and discussion concerning hard red spring wheat, durum, barley and oats. In summary, this 5 year study with hard red spring wheat, durum, barley and oats planted on fallow, conventional and no-till re-crop systems at the North Central Experiment Station at Minot indicated that varieties planted on fallow tended to yield more, head later, grow taller and have a slightly heavier disease infestation, regardless of crop tested, compared to conventional or no-till re-crop.
