Abstract


Intensive soil tillage system in long period time cause detremental of soil physical, chemical, and biological quality. It needs, therefore, oil tillage system that maintaining land well productivity. It is conservation soil tillage system. The research aims to study and compare soil physical properties of conservation tillage and 15 years intensive tillage. Observed parameters were soil texture, organic matter, agregate stability, available water, soil moiture movement, soil macrofauna, and soil macro poroity. The research result shows that soil organic matter, agregate stability, available water, soil moiture movement, soil macrofauna, and soil macro poroity under conservation tillage were higher than 15 years intensive tillage.


Keywords: Conservation soil tillage, soil mositure, soil physical properties
