Tillage systems are often classified by the amount of surface residue left on the soil surface. Conservation tillage systems leave more than 30% of the soil surface covered with crop residue.

This amount of surface residue cover is considered to be at a level where erosion is significantly reduced (see figure ). Of course, this residue.
