ABSTRACT
The article offers suggestions on how to achieve direct-drilling success by adopting no-till system for establishing crops. It reveals that the system helps retain moisture, break compaction and increase organic matter in the soil. It further mentions that ultra-low-disturbance drill removes as much as little soil in the drilling process.
