four-year rotations, wheat and grain sorghum rotations, dryland rotation systems


In recent years, cropping intensity has increased in dryland systems in western Kansas. The traditional wheat-fallow system is being replaced by wheat-summer crop-fallow rotations. Is more intensive cropping feasible with concurrent increases in no-till? Objectives of this research were to quantify soil water storage, crop water use, and crop productivity of 4-year and continuous cropping systems.
