Description :
The aim of this study was to research the influence of 4 different tillage practices (T1 : Conventional tillage; T2 : Reduced tillage-I;; T3 : Reduced tillage-II and T4 : No-till) on bulk density, total porosity, penetration resistance, field capacity, field water content and the infiltration rate of a loamy soil in a semi-arid region with a cool climate and an annual mean temperature of 5.6 °C. In particular, the effectiveness of the no-till practice was investigated. The AA. made assessments of selected soil properties according to the data during the sowing–germination period of winter wheat in 2012 autumn. The results indicated that the tillage treatments affected soil properties and wheat germination. It is highlighted that : No-till provided higher field capacity, field water content and infiltration rate; Soil bulk density and penetration resistance were lower in conventional tillage; No-till practice increased winter wheat germination.
