Title: An economic evaluation of soil tillage technologies: Summary report
Author: Deloitte and Touche Management Consultants
Abstract: This report summarizes the keyissues, findings and conclusions of the economic evaluation of soil tillage technologies. Details of the findings reported here are presented in six supporting documents. It has been demonstrated that soil conserving tillage technologies are profitable to use from both a farm field and watershed level. In addition to these farm related benefits, downstream activities (e.g. water conveyance) would be positively impacted with a reduction in soil loss, ranging from $3.00 to $12.00 per hectare of cropped farm land. This report examines issues and options for promoting greater farmer adoption rates of reduced tillage technologies.
