Good intercrop management constitutes AGRONOMIC ASSETS for the next crop:
To control weeds with successful presowing, aiming for good weed germination through superficial seed positioning.
To prepare the seedbed (in Min-till techniques) through accelerated stalk decomposition by optimising 3 factors: soil + humidity + air.
To control seed depth for the next crop (in Min-till techniques) through perfect levelling.
To preserve soil humidity (in Min-till techniques) through superficial mulching which prevents evaporation.
The quality of stubble ploughing is a key to success in the Minimum Tillage Technique.
Stubble ploughing also provides the opportunity to install intermediate cover.
