Influence of Crop Rotations, Tillage and Nitrogen Fertility on Cotton Yields

J. E. Matocha and S. G. Vacek


Use of crop rotations can be instrumental in increasing plant nutrient utilization efficiency, improve weed control and increase crop yields. Cotton grower interest in use of conservation tillage has increased in the South. Such factors as conservation of soil and available water and product output economics have influenced this change. Past research evaluating crop rotations which included legumes and utilize biological nitrogen fixation under various conservation tillage systems in the South and Southwest is limited.
