Role of mulching techniques in tropical soil and water management

, : Role of mulching techniques in tropical soil and water management. Technical Bulletin, International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (1): 38

Surface mulching with crop residue at the rate of 4 to 6 tons/ha decreases soil temperature and maintains favorable soil structure through enhanced biological activity. Continuous surface cover can be maintained by growing crops exclusively for use as a mulch, by live mulch from low growing and least competitive cover crops or by the use of crop residue through rotation and tillage techniques.
