The effects of conservation tillage practices on soil microbial biomass carbon and nitrogen after three years of maize-wheat-soybean rotation in the Loess Plateau
It is known that tillage decreases soil organic matter and causes biological degradation．The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of tillage practices on soil microbial biomass C and microbial biomass N．These criteria were used as indicators of soil biological status and of sustainability of crop rotation usin...
