Assessment of Soil Quality on Tillage-Straw-Nitrogen (TSN) Plots at Ellerslie and Breton Utilizing Physical, Chemical, and Biological Properties, 2007 The Tillage-Straw-Nitrogen (TSN) plots were originally set up at the Ellerslie and Breton research sites in 1979. These plots have been in consistent management under different experimental treatments for 28 years. The tillage treatments include tillage and no-tillage; the straw treatments include no straw (i. e.
