Permalink Conservation Effects Assessment Project Documents Fuel Savings from No-Till

USDA logoThe Conservation Effects Assessment Project of USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service conducted an annual fuel savings study comparing gallons of fuel used in conventional tillage practices to gallons used in conservation tillage practices like seasonal and continuous no-till. The study found the fuel savings associated with no-till to be significant: four gallons of diesel fuel per acre per year, a total of nearly 282 million gallons nationally. NRCS points out that these fuel savings are just one of the benefits that farmers can gain by reducing or eliminating tillage.
