Summary: Project includes six tillage systems of silty loam soil,where one of systems is conventional,while others are reduced tillage systems.The aim of project is to find out energy and labour requirements per hectar and tonne of yield for each system.Further aim is to find out influence of quantity and manner of organic matter incorporation on microfauna and other soil properties.

Keywords: Soil tillage,organic matter,energy saving,labour saving

Research goals: Essential goal of project is : -reduce to possible minimum compaction of soil by tractor wheels and tillage implements; -sustain or even improve soil properties(especially rhizosphera)as medium for arable crops growth; -reduce soil tillage energy and labour requirement to a acceptable minimum using integral technique. Expected results are: -to stop humus decreasing trend in soil; -increase soil humus content to optimum value and sustain it; -mentioned goals realize by continuous incorporation of organic matter(postharvest residues) in quantities with respect to natural climax; -positively influence on soil microflora,air-water content,and also all essential soil properties; -select systems and technique for soil tillage which assure minimum compaction; -using integral technique(compound implements) diminish number of passes,gathering single operations into one,acchieving better tractor engine efficiency and reducing energy requirement; -changing conventional soil tillage system in arable crop production with different reduced tillage systems.
