Abstract

Our study focuses on comparing the effects of different technical itineraries - that are conventional tillage (CT), direct seeding on dead cover (DSDC), direct seeding on alive cover crop of Alfalfa with application of herbicide (DSAC+H) and direct seeding on alive cover crop of Alfalfa associated with sheep grazing (DSAC+G) - on the behavior of barley crop and on the evolution of soil fertility in a steppe region characterized by its dry climate, the brittleness of its soils and the large practice of ranching and cereal. Both soil and crop parameters were evaluated, and we made sure in which itinerary the best results are obtained, either for those linked to the soil (soil moisture and the storage of organic matter) or those related to the crop yield and the economic results.
