Wind erosion from excessively tilled soils is a severe problem, especially in south-central Washington. Tillage of fallow land in the world’s driest rainfed wheat production region is considered necessary, but it is also a major safety, environmental, and soil quality concern. This publication outlines the results of a 5-year study to determine the effects of three fallow management systems—traditional tillage, undercutter tillage, and no tillage—and suggests best management practices for farmers in this region.
