Agricultural management practices (AMPs) play an important role in affecting soil quality and hence in agricultural sustainability. Techniques and approaches such as contour ploughing, no or reduced tillage, manuring and crop rotation have all been shown to have a positive effect on soil quality in many pedo-climatic zones and soil types.
