Today I worked on a field that has been notilled for a long time. Higher organic matter in the top 3 to 4 inches was very evident. I also found a little used and old chisel plow on the farm. I think it is used to fill in ephemeral gullies. I saw no sheet and rill erosion on the farm. Also, there were no ruts cut last fall. The soil probed easily. The farm did have erosion issues in areas with concentrated flow. It looked like more waterways with tile were in order.
