Abstract:

Conservation agriculture is very important practice to reduce the cost of cultivation and natural resources of any crop. It was observed that 25-30 % cost taken in land preparation than other operation that can be reduced only by using high conservation tillage practice like adopting of zero tillage, minimum tillage, happy seeder, laser leveler etc. Continuing using of heavy machine and improper agricultural practices caused of soil degradation and impact on environment losses can be rectified by only conservation agriculture practices. Applied at the right time and on the right covering equipment could replace the use of, irrigation, pesticide, herbicides for crop establishment. The objective is to leave as many residues as possible in order to increase soil organic matter and to spread them as evenly as possible. Especially in environments where decomposition is fast and where the amount of residues is low it is not recommended to chop the residues. Rotavator is important machine which break the soil and crop residues and mix so that eventually. Conservation agriculture crop can be increased climatic resilence, food security, soil nutrion, energy reduction and income. Presently farmers are facing the problem of labour shortage and drudgery of farming these are all can be reduced by conservation tillage practice.
