Careful soil preparation is essential for cereal crops grown without fallow on clover ley land.
Crops give better yields where the land is broken up with a mouldboard or disc plough rather than a scarifier or similar machine.
The implements differ appreciably in their capacity to control weed growth and this is largely responsible for variations in cereal yields. "Takeall" disease is reduced by efficient weed control.
