2021 SEP 24 (NewsRx) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- A new study on soil research is now available. According to news reporting originating from Chengdu, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Conservation tillage has attracted increasing attention over recent decades, mainly due to its benefits for improving soil organic matter content and reducing soil erosion. However, the effects of long-term straw mulching under a no-till system on soil physicochemical properties and bacterial communities at different soil depths are still unclear."

Funders for this research include National Natural Science Foundation of China; Sichuan Province Science and Technology Support Program; National Key Research and Development Program of China.

The news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Sichuan Academy of Agricultural Sciences: "In this 12-year experiment of straw removal (CK) and straw mulching (SM) treatments, soil...
