||This paper investigates the impact of sustainable agricultural practices on crop productivity, with a particular focus on reduced tillage. Specifically, the report investigate whether reduced tillage results in more or less productivity gain than chemical fertilizer. Results support encouraging resource-constrained farmers in semi-arid areas to adopt sustainable agricultural practices, especially since they enable farmers to reduce production costs, provide environmental benefits, and—as our results confirm—enhance crop productivity.
