Summary

As part of the TILMAN-ORG CORE ORGANIC II project, data on the use of reduced tillage in organic farming systems from a range of field trials and the published literature was compiled. A meta-analysis was conducted to determine the impacts of reduced tillage on crop yields, weed pressure and soil organic C stocks. This paper highlights some of the key findings from this study.
