Climate change consequences forcing more and more Lithuanian farmers to follow new achievements in soil tillage as well as conversion to conservation agriculture. One of such possibilities – NoTill farming, where scientific approach is necessary. Due to evaluation such new tendencies long-term field experiment arranged on Experimental Station of Aleksandras Stulginskis University by prof. dr. Vaclovas Bogužas since 2000.
