Abstract

This document provides details of the objectives, methodology, and results of activities related to the collection and analysis of field data pertaining to Pilot Watersheds over a three year period. The overall objective of the field data collection and analysis effort was to produce field based partial budgets comparing costs and returns (net revenue) between conventional and conservation tillage practices. Achieving this objective involved activity in three areas: developing a data acquisition instrument to facilitate collection of relevant economic data from co-operands, collecting data from co-operands and entering it in a database that would facilitate cleaning, storage, retrieval, and analysis of the data, and carrying out a cost analysis of field operations performed and materials applied.
