Soil Quality

The burrowing and feeding activity of earthworms have numerous beneficial effects on overall soil quality for crop production.

The research objective of this study is to evaluate differences in crop growth and yield, and soil health using six different tillage systems.

Soil organic matter is a dynamic soil property and continuous work is required to maintain or increase its value. The ultimate source of almost all organic matter in soil is plant material.

This is a brief and simplified introduction to the origins of soils and how they influence capabilities and uses of soils.
