To Till or Not To Till, That is the Question

There has been a lot of attention paid to the potential value of reduced tillage in soil carbon sequestration. Some organic farms are using reduced tillage techniques successfully and seeing improvements in yields and soil health, and others struggle with the challenges of weed management, disease control, and other practical barriers. What does the science say about the connection between reduced till, soil organic matter and related carbon storage? What are the other agronomic benefits of reducing tillage? What are the practical considerations when trying to reduce tillage in an organic system? What other practices can be combined with reduced tillage to add value in terms of yields, management and climate?
