Crop And Tillage Management Effects On Water Flow And Nitrate-Nitrogen Loss Through Subsurface Drains , David L. Bjorneberg

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Data were collected from subsurface drains on 36, 0.4-ha plots at Iowa State University's Northeast Research Farm near Nashua, IA to determine crop and tillage management effects on water flow and nitrate-N loss through subsurface drains. From 1990 to 1992, four tillage systems (chisel plow, moldboard plow, ridge till and no-till) were used with two crop rotations (continuous corn (Zea mays L.) and corn-soybean (Glycine max L. (Herr.)) rotation) and a single-spring fertilizer application. From 1993 to 1995, tillage systems were reduced to chisel plow and no-till, while fertilizer management changed to include single-spring fertilizer, spring-summer split fertilizer ...
