Coarse seedbed preparation
This measure helps to significantly reduce the risk of erosion on farmland. Due to the roughness of the surface structure, it helps the surface water to pass into the subsoil. In addition, surface water runoff is significantly decreased by a number of temporary storage spaces and a high level of turbulence. However, the measure is contradictory to other measures aiming on protective soil management and should be used with caution.
