Stubble retention can provide protection from soil erosion, better water infiltration, reduced evaporation and nutrient retention. However stubble retention also creates difficulties, particularly managing organic material during cultivation, increased populations of mice and slugs and the retention of weed seeds. In the high rainfall zones these problems are exacerbated. Regularly farmers burn their heavy stubbles, creating environmental problems for the industry and depleting the soil of nutrients.
