To gain experience in the continuous growing of dry annual crops in the humid tropics, the Centre for Agricultural Research in Surinam (CELOS) set up trials in 1969 to compare tillage and zerotillage systems in the coastal heavy clay soils and the light soils inland. Effects of rotavating, ploughing + disc harrowing, and zero-tillage + chemical weed control on soil, weeds and crops were compared.
