DEP uses remotely sensed and other data to derive a tillage practice for each modelled hillslope point. This practice is expressed as a code with increasing values implying more intense tillage. Here's a brief summary of what each code implies.
|1||No till||No tillage except by no till planter.|
|2||Very high mulch||Spring field cultivate, plant (includes fall chisel plow for corn)|
|3||High mulch||Fall chisel plow, spring field cultivate, plant (includes disk for corn, disk was substituted for field cultivate for sorghum).|
|4||Medium mulch||Fall chisel plow, spring disk, field cultivate, plant (included an additional spring disking for corn).|
|5||Low mulch||Fall chisel plow, two spring disk, field cultivate, plant (for corn, moldboard plow was substituted for chisel plow, and no spring disk).|
|6||Fall moldboard plow||Fall moldboard plow, spring disk, spring field cultivate, plant (no spring disk for corn silage).|
