dc.description.abstractA strip tillage system was compared to conventional tillage in field peppers grown on a light, sandy soil. Monitoring showed that there is a potential for a 34% reduction in fuel use for strip tillage vs. conventional tillage. Yields from the strip till were 5% higher than the conventional. Weed control was more difficult in the strip tillage system because the rye could not be worked until it was 1 metre tall.en_US
