Title: Field Windbreak Management and Its Effect on Adjacent Crop Yield
Author: Tuskan, G. A.; Chaput, L. J.
Description: The winter of 1989/90 experienced high winds creating much topsoil loss. Windbreaks might aid in reducing top soil loss in these times. A study was conducted to discover if windbreaks enhanced corn and potato yields. Also, they tried placing windbreaks at different distances. In addition, thinning, fertilizer application and root pruning is covered in this study. Findings cited mid-field windbreaks appeared more effective possibly due to enhanced moisture capabilities. Crop yields varied. Thinning seemed to help. Root pruning reduced yields.
