The soil, as a natural resource that through the interaction of its physical, chemical, biological and environmental properties, offers support for terrestrial life. From the agricultural point of view, as the means that allows man to obtain products for his subsistence. The soil as a non-renewable, limited, finite resource that degrades, pollutes and loses its productive potential. Therefore we must take care of it, preserve it and have sustainable practices for its recovery. The objective of tillage is to condition the soil for sowing, germination, root development and initial plant growth, ensuring the supply of water, air and nutrients.
