Strategic tillage "The key to successful no-till farming into the future is likely to be flexibility and the introduction of strategic tillage," says Dr Yash Dang, a GRDC-funded researcher at the Queensland Department of Science, Information Technology, Innovation and the Arts (DSITIA) in Toowoomba... Dr Dang has been evaluating the effects of strategic tillage in no till systems on weeds and soil health. ".. Strategic tillage allows growers to keep most of the associated soil health and labour benefits of no till, with many of the advantages of a tillage system," says Dr Dang...

Future research will determine the best timing for strategic tillage in no-till... In the study, conducted on a deep alluvial clay soil capable of storing a lot of fallow water, 20 years of no-till on average out-yielded full tillage (disc and scarifier) by 30 per_cent... Minimum-tillage (stubble mulching) treatments involving the periodic use of a chisel plough, blade plough and/or rod weeder, and reduced-tillage using the same stubble-mulching implements and appropriate herbicides was also assessed against no-till and full tillage (all crop residues were retained in all comparisons)...
