Potential of No-till Systems for Arable Farmers 

No-till arable systems have the potential to address the economic and environmental interacting challenges of sustainable intensification, namely to reduce costs of labour, fuel and machinery, to reduce GHG emissions, and to increase carbon sequestration. This study assesses the potential for no-till arable systems in the UK, and uses UK farm case studies where no-till systems have already been adopted. It also identifies gaps in knowledge where further research is required.
