Conservation tillage (CT) has been globally recognized as an advanced agricultural technology that may reduce the effect of drought and improve the physical condition of soils. In China, CT research started with support from the Ministry of Agriculture (MOA), China and the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research in 1992 (He et al. 2010). Significant efforts have been achieved during these years especially in the arid and semi-arid region of China. This paper reports the impacts of CT on crop yields in dryland areas of China including the loess plateau of China, North China plain, Northeast China, Northwest China and the farming–pastoral ecotone of Inner Mongolia.
