This presentation provides an Overview of the research undertaken in North Carolina and Alabama, which compared the mineralization rates of carbon and nitrogen according to tillage practice (conservation tillage or conventional tillage). The study determined the following: faster decomposition occurred in AL, C mineralized faster from buried residue while N released faster from buried residue in NC, N released at same rate in AL regardless of placement, and N credits are not warranted when growing peanuts.
