Overview

This 2-page factsheet discusses a study conducted to evaluate the synergies between conservation tillage and irrigation management.

Synergies between conservation tillage and irrigation management have not been well quantified. This factsheet describes a study to determine the effect of irrigation frequency on cotton production and economic viability in conservation tillage systems. (2 pages)
