The negative effect of long fallowing was confirmed by the soil C measurements which tended to be lower than in other rotations except in 1993 on the black earth when long fallow was similar to continuous wheat (Table 3).
Long fallowing had a larger relative effect on N accretion on the red clay than on the black earth in the previous summer cropping cycle (1987) (Holford 1990) but a smaller effect in this winter cropping cycle.
Fallowing allows soil water to accumulate for use by a subsequent crop thereby reducing the incidence of crop failure.
Incorporation of surface crop residue by repeated surface tillage with conventional fallowing results in increased soil surface erosion by wind and water.
However, advantages of chemical or chemical plus tillage fallowing such as improved wind and water erosion control and reduced farm equipment requirements should not be overlooked given the environmental conditions under which winter wheat is grown in Wyoming.
