The research goals are to compare soil conditions, soybean plant development and yields between strip till, conventional till and no-till in wheat and corn stubble. The research will be conducted on whole fields and interested persons will have real time access to the project on the Internet. The project’s specific objectives are: • Compare various till systems for soybean production. The researchers will compare soybean germination, emergence, plant growth and development, and yields between strip till, conventional till and no-till in wheat and corn stubble; • Compare soil moisture and temperature in strip till, conventional till and no-till soybeans planted on wheat and corn stubble; • Monitor air temperature, rainfall, leaf wetness, relative humidity and light intensity in both wheat and corn stubble; and • Display the remotely sensed soil conditions and soybean growth progress information on the Internet in real-time.
