The best part of this new farming practice is that it increases crop production noticeably. The benefits of strip tilling have been proved by numerous researches made throughout the world.

Recently in an experiment, a research team monitored the poorly drained fields of clay pan soil planted with corn after the soybean. One part of this field was 'strip tilled' and a rich dose of nitrogen fertilizer was delivered in the soil. Another part of field was left untilled and nitrogen fertilizer was placed on the surface. The experts found that strip tillage significantly reduced the greenhouse gases emission when compared to that of no-till treated part.

Under strip tillage, field is tilled in strips of approx. one foot wide with 8 to 9 inches depth instead of tilling entire field. As result, crop residues remains on the surface of the field. This farming process needs less fertilizer and less tilling efforts. It reduces soil erosion but conserves soil moisture in the large area of farming field. To get improved results, one needs to focus upon efficient fertilizer use at every stage. More fertilizer doesnt guarantee for more yields.
