Abstract: Fourteen long term side-by-side tillage practice experiments were studied to analyze if no-tillage yields improved through time allowing incentives to decline. In the majority of cases, no significant increase in no-till yield is evident. Incentives may need to be permanent if switched acres are to remain using no-tillage practices.
