Conservation Tillage

Conservation Tillage

Conservation tillage involves planting and growing crops with minimal disturbance of the surface soil. No-till farming, a form of conservation tillage, is used to seed the crop directly into vegetative cover or crop residue with no disturbance of the surface soil. Minimum tillage farming involves some disturbance of the soil, but uses tillage equipment that leaves much of the vegetative cover or crop residue on the surface.

Funding Source​

The State of Maryland offers an income tax subtraction modification to help farmers offset costs associated with buying certain types of conservation tillage equipment.
