Plots of fine sandy loam were tilled with either a scarifier (tine digger) or a rotary cultivator (rotovator), or left untilled as checks. Wheat grown on rotovated plots was significantly taller and yielded more at harvest than wheat grown on scarified plots. Differences in wheat plant height were related to soil structure and soil water but not to soil temperature.
