Title Soil tillage experiment Schlatthof (Aesch trial)
Title Original Bodenbearbeitungsversuch Schlatthof (Aesch-Versuch)
FiBL project number 10062

On a loess soil at Schlatthof, Aesch near Basle, Switzerland we test the influence of reduced tillage in organic farming. At this experiment reduced tillage (shallow tillage, 5cm deep loosening or turning) is compared with ploughing (22cm deep). The plots were fertilized with slurry or minerals fertilizer. Both fertilizers were graded in a low and a high level together with a no fertilized control. Yield, humus dynamic and weed infestation were measured.
