Crop rotation and tillage impact on carbon sequestration in Saskatchewan soils
Six field experiments from the Brown to Black soil zones and from light- to heavy-textured soils in Saskatchewan were conducted to quantify C sequestration under different tillage and crop rotations. Continuous cropping ...

Long-term tillage and crop rotation effect on soil aggregation
Tillage and cropping sequences play a key role in controlling soil aggregation. We measured water-stable aggregate (WSA), wind erodible fraction (WEF), and geometric mean diameter (GMD) for six mid to longterm (8 to 25 ...
A simple model for quantifying change in soil organic C as influenced by tillage and crop rotations on the Canadian prairies
Simulation models are required for quantifying the impact of crop rotations and tillage on soil organic C dynamics, and for aggregating C sequestration over a relatively large area. However, most current models of soil ...
