Proper pasture management is a year round effort. Fall is one of the most critical periods for western Oregon pastures, as well as central and eastern irrigated pastures. Management during the fall affects the ability of ...
Some farmers in the Inland Pacific Northwest have reported lower grain yield of spring cereals with no-till (NT) compared to conservation tillage (CT). A 4-year field study was conducted in a 12-inch annual precipitation zone to determine tillage method and sowing rate effects on seed-zone water, seed-zone temperature, plant stand, grain yield, grain yield components, and straw production for three spring-sown cereal species.
