Mulch tillage

Crop residues are left on the surface, and subsurface tillage leaves them relatively undisturbed. In dryland areas, a maximum amount of mulch is left on the surface; in more humid regions, however, some of the mulch is buried. Planting is accomplished with disk openers that go through several inches of mulch. Since mulch decomposition may deprive the crop of Nitrogen, extra fertilizer is often placed below the mulch in humid areas.

Mulch

Organic material that is used to protect the soil. Any material, such as straw, sawdust, leaves, plastic film, loose soil, etc., that is spread upon the surface of the soil to protect it and plant roots from the effects of raindrops, soil crusting, freezing, evaporation, etc.

Mouldboard Plough

A major advance in plough design was the mouldboard plough, which aided the cutting blade. The coulter, knife or skeith cuts vertically into the ground just ahead of the share (or frog) a wedge-shaped surface to the front and bottom of the mouldboard with the landside of the frame supporting the below-ground components. The upper parts of the frame carries (from the front) the coupling for the motive power (horses), the coulter and the landside frame.

Mouldboard

The curved part of a plough which lifts the soil, turns it to the side.
