3499. Kaiser, V.G., W.W. Pawson, M.H. Groenveld and O.L. Brough. 1954. Soil loss on wheat farms in the Palouse wheat - pea area, 1952-53. WA Agr. Expt. Sta. Circ. #255.
Average soil loss on fields seeded to winter wheat was 8 T/a on winter wheat after summer fallow it was 18 T/ac. Various suggested ways of conservation farming: 1) crop rotation; 2) reduction of summer fallow; 3) not burning stubble; 4) use of fertilizer; 5) stubble mulch; 6) early seeding of winter wheat. T: Soil loss per type of winter crop. Soil loss on wheat after summer fallow. Soil loss per slope of land.

1369. Cochran, V.L., R.I. Papendick and C.D. Fanning. 1970. Early fall crop establishment to reduce winter runoff and erosion.. J. Soil Water Conservation, 25(6):231-234.
An experiment was done to measure differences in seeding dates and double disk vs. deep furrow planting on erosion and yield of wheat. The study found that earlier (Sept.) seeded wheat planted at wider spacings (16 in.) with a deep furrow drill had higher yields and less erosion that conventional double disk October seeded wheat. T: Influence of seeding method (deep furrow vs. double disk) on wheat yield.
