2984. Jacklin, A.W.. 1940. Annual Agronomy Report. North Idaho Area. USDA - SCS, Moscow, ID.
Sweetclover well suited as a soil building crop; best to plant with a grass to reduce erosion, reducing "burning" of first grain crop, improve quality of forage; have tried slender wheat grass, blue and Canada wild type; still looking for a good species; gypsum increased tonnage of tops, shortened tap root depth. T: yield, crop performance.

Drill is 11' wide, weighs 8700 lb when full; describes construction and operation of the drill; field results.

Tillage and plant resiude management for water erosion control on agricultural land in eastern OR.

1819. Elliott, L.F. (ed.). 1987. STEEP - Conservation concepts and accomplishments.. Washington State Univ. Publ., 662pp..
A compilation of 48 papers covering: tillage and plant maagement; erosion and runoff predictions; plant design; pest management; socio-economic; integrated systems; technology transfer for cropping systems; 22 technical notes. T: many

1086. Brooks, R.O. and E.L. Michalson. 1983. An evaluation of BMP's in the Cow Creek watershed of Latah County, Idaho.. ID Agr. Expt. Sta. Research Bull. #127.
Eight BMP's were evaluated. Major farm income loss occurred when soil erosion was reduced below 6 T/ac./yr. This required minimum tillage and a rotation change from wheat-barley-fallow to wheat-barley-peas.

1229. Carlson, J.E., D.A. Dillman and W.R. Lassey. 1981. The farmer and erosion: factors influencing the use of control practices.. ID Agr. Expt. Sta. Bull. #601.
Random survey in the Palouse. Most farmers using some form of conservation. Few using no-till, many interested in it. Groupings of practices included: divided slope, seeding critical areas, uphill plowing, crop mulching, and chisel plowing. All take little capital investment. Poor correlation between practices used and belief by farmer about soil conservation. High erosion potential rotations were dominant. Higher income, higher education, and lower age were associated with higher erosion potential rotations. T: Use of conservation practices; crop rotations in use

1239. Carter, L.S. and G.R. McDole. 1942. Stubble mulch farming for soil defense.. USDA Farmers' Bulletin 1917.
Discusses the value of stubble mulch tillage for the various parts of the U.S. Shows a number of implements to achieve good residue cover, including noble blades, a rotary subsoiler that leaves surface pockets, modified moldboard plows.

2928. Idaho Agr. Expt. Sta.. 1949. Annual report.. ID Agr. Expt. Sta. Bull. #276.
Sweetclover maintained OM levels, slight loss in W-P; N fertilizer reduced OM losses where straw was removed.
