Depth of tillage effects on deep sandplain soils locations
Aims

To characterize the effect of various depths of ripping on crop performance.

Key messages

Yield differences of 2*st. dev. are significant. Within plot variability was large (st. dev. about 0.3 to 0.4 t/ha) but there is an apparent response to ripping, but not to depth of ripping.  More information is needed to interpret these results.
