No-tillage and conservation tillage : economic considerations
In this guide, complete corn and soybean budgets, including details of production activities, inputs and prices, are used to examine the economic consequences of moving from conservation tillage to notillage production. Special care is taken to distinguish between those expected cost changes that involve cash and those that don't. Some discussion centers on the specific circumstances necessary to recognize particular savings from adopting no-tillage. A section on leasing discusses the changes that might occur as tenants adopt no-tillage production.
