Abstract

This study determined the effect of Zea mays L. and Phaseolus vulgaris L. intercrop under no-till with residue retention (Conservation Agriculture- CA) on composition and population of soil fungal species. Soil samples were collected from 64 farms, half of which had tested CA and the other half had tested Conventional Tillage (CT) for five years. Half of CA and CT farms were in Upper Midland (UM 3), the other half in Lower Midland (LM 4).
