Abstract:

Minimum tillage is a system that limits the number of physical soil manipulations to the minimum. Work done in temperate regions and the tropics has demonstrated the benefits of minimum tillage over conventional tillage under specific conditions. The Kenya Government has recognized the need for more research in this area of minimum tillage and this has led to the initiation of trials in an attempt to develop easily adopted tillage systems. This paper gives the results of trials done at the Embu Research Station to determine the feasibility of minimum tillage in a medium-potential area of Kenya. Also tries to establish and confirm the yield advantages of minimum tillage over conventional tillage as observed elsewhere
