Soil organic carbon storage in a no-tillage chronosequence under Mediterranean conditions
Arrúe, José Luis
MetadataShow full item record
The duration of soil organic carbon (SOC) sequestration in agricultural soils varies according to soil management, land-use history and soil and climate conditions. Despite several experiments have reported SOC sequestration with the adoption of no-tillage (NT) in Mediterranean dryland agroecosystems scarce information exists about the duration and magnitude of the sequestration process. For this reason, 20 years ago we established in northeast Spain a NT chronosequence experiment to evaluate SOC sequestration duration under Mediterranean dryland conditions.

Soil aggregation and organic carbon protection in a no-tillage chronosequence under Mediterranean conditions Plaza Bonilla, Daniel; Cantero-Martínez, Carlos; Viñas Dueso, Pablo; Álvaro-Fuentes, Jorge (Elsevier, 2013)Low-intensity soil management systems like no-tillage (NT) are being increasingly accepted as an essential part of sustainable farming systems. The objective of this work was to study the effects of NT maintenance over ...
Long-term analysis of soil water conservation and crop yield under different tillage systems in Mediterranean rainfed conditions Lampurlanés Castel, Jorge; Plaza Bonilla, Daniel; Álvaro-Fuentes, Jorge; Cantero-Martínez, Carlos (Elsevier, 2016)This study focuses on the quantification of soil water storage and crop yield under different tillage systems in dryland semiarid Mediterranean conditions. Three long-term tillage experiments based on cereal production ...
Tillage effects on soil aggregation and soil organic carbon profile distribution under Mediterranean semi-arid conditions Plaza Bonilla, Daniel; Cantero-Martínez, Carlos; Álvaro-Fuentes, Jorge (Wiley, 2010)In rainfed semi-arid agroecosystems, soil organic carbon (SOC) may increase with the adoption of alternative tillage systems (e.g. no-tillage, NT). This study evaluated the effect of two tillage systems (conventional ...
