We also do sheep jetting for Followers: mulch, held to the land by standing stubble, to conserve moisture and to prevent the soil from washing or blowing away ; thus the term "stubble mulching." Stubble-mulch farming is a year-round way of managing plant residues on cropland. Harvest- ing, cultivating, seedbed preparation, and plant- ing are all done so as to leave residues of the pre-. equipment for stubble mulching (b) kinds of equipment and sequences of operations used, (c) performance char­ acteristics of equipment in terms of resi­ due conservation, soil cloddiness, weed control and crop yield, and (d) prob­ lems associated with stubble-mulch till­ age and planting in the Great Plains. The discussion is restricted to. In more humid areas of the Great Plains and in the Pacific Northwest, there may be substantial decreases in grain yield with stubble mulching. These yield reductions with stubble mulch tillage are apparently due to decreased nutrient availability, particularly nitrogen, inadequate weed control, or a combination of both by:

Stubble mulch definition is - a lightly tilled mulch of plant residue used to prevent erosion, conserve moisture, and add organic matter to the soil.   "Stubble-mulch farming, spectacular in its recent spread across the West, has sound scientific support. In one form or another, it has been demonstrating its advantages on experimental plots and in isolated field trials for many years. It is a practice that furthers the highest crop and livestock production compatible with the principle of soil : L. S. Carter, G. R. McDole. Stubble Mulch. The blade plow or sweep plow, a common tillage implement in the High Plains, cuts weeds at the roots and leaves most of the residue anchored at the surface with minimum disturbance of the soil surface. Blade plowing is typically a summer fallow operation after small grain harvest. It kills weeds and loosens the surface.

Effects of stubble and mulching on soil erosion by wind in semi-arid China Peifei Cong1,2,3, GuanghuaYin1 & Jian Gu1,3 Soil erosion is a growing challenge for . Equipment and Its Use for Stubble-Mulch Farming The fourth basic factor involves tilling the land and yet maintaining a protective cover. It is necessary to know what equipment is available for stubble mulching and how each machine rates in reduction of residue and con­ trol of weeds. Implements that can be used for stubble­. Stubble management requires an integrated management approach, combining several strategies. ¾ Estimating stubble loads before harvest will help identify the best management practices to use during and post harvest, and pre sowing. ¾ If stubble cannot be retained due to heavy disease or weed burdens, adopt best management practices to.
