Abstract
The presence of residue mulches in farm has been known to effectively save the soil surface, prevent soil erosion on slopes, helps reduce soil moisture loss through evaporation, and insulates soil, protect roots from extreme temperatures, improve soil biology, aeration, aggregation of soil particles and reduce drainage over time, improve soil fertility as certain mulch types decompose, inhibits certain plant diseases, reduces the likelihood of tree damage from "weed whackers" or the dreaded "lawn mower blight", give planting beds a uniform and provide favorable preservation of ecological stability. This experiment was conducted in the Teaching and Research Farm ...
