Three cropping systems were compared under no-till management: wheat-fallow, wheat-corn-millet-fallow, and perennial grass. The four-year crop rotation had greater aboveground production, greater N uptake, and greater residue retention that wheat-fallow. Continous grass had less aboveground production and N uptake but greater residue retention than the cropped systems. The four-year rotation had lower potential for N leaching than wheat-fallow, and greater potential for replenishment of soil organic N.
