Reduced tillage to reduce water erosion
Establish a reduced tillage system to reduce soil loss. Field(s) must have a soil loss at or
below the soil tolerance (T) level for water and wind erosion for the crop rotation and a
Soil Tillage Intensity Rating (STIR) of no greater than 40 for each crop in the planned
rotation. The current NRCS wind and water erosion prediction technologies must be used
to calculate soil loss and STIR
