Tillage and Manure Practices

Description of the Minnesota River Basin and General Recommendations of Residue Management Systems for Sediment Control

Moncrief, John F.
This Extension Service publication discusses the higher levels of sediment load found in the Minnesota River when compared to the St. Croix and Mississippi, identifying the differences among the rivers (e.g., vegetation, agricultural activity, and soil texture) that contribute to this disparity. Recommendations are provided for tillage and manure practices that may reduce sediment runoff.
