Title: A survey of crop residue in southwestern Ontario 1987
Author: Roberts, Peter; Coleman, Dell
Abstract: This report represents the results of a study of crop residue conducted by a combined windshield/on-site survey of over 10,000 fields in Southwestern Ontario in the spring of 1987. The purpose of the survey was to provide a detailed data base for the Soil and Water Environmental Enhancement Program (SWEEP). SWEEP is a 5-year program aimed at reducing phosphorus loadings from cropland run-off and to improve or maintain the productivity of agriculture in the Lake Erie Basin. The survey gathered baseline data for percent residue cover of the soil surface for various combinations of crops and tillage systems.
