NO-TILLAGE

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
No-tillage (also zero tillage) is a minimum tillage practice in which the crop is sown directly into soil not tilled since the harvest of the previous crop. Weed control is achieved by the use of herbicides and stubble is retained for erosion control. It is typically practised in arable areas where fallowing is important.
