Organic matter content increases due to less mineralization.

Control of weeds is the main problem in zero tillage. Incomplete weed control is the main ebstoute to the further adoption. Zero tillage a widely used in humid areas.

i. Soils are subject to wind and water erosion eg. in sloppy bare compacted soils with high gilt fine sand.
ii. Timing of tillage operation 15 foods difficult.
iii. Conventional tillage to not yield more.
iv. Requirement of energy and labour too high.
v. In medium to fine textured soils use of heavy implements can result in formation of hard puncturing wet conditions. Much more research information is needed on cartilage.
