The 2004-CIGR (International Commission of Agricultural Engineering) International Conference at Beijing is a forum on agricultural engineering for the new millennium. Session IV “Conservation Tillage and Sustainable Small Farming” is one of the main parts in the Conference.
Sustainable Farming (SF) is now a hot issue worldwide. Conservation Tillage (CT) is recognized as a viable concept for its comprehensive benefits on economic, environmental and sustainability of agriculture. CT has been extended in US, Australia, Canada and South American Countries on large mechanized farms using heavy machinery.
