Tillage is the agricultural preparation of soil by mechanical agitation of various types, such as digging, stirring, and overturning. Examples of human-powered tilling methods using hand tools include shoveling, picking, mattock work, hoeing, and rajasthan-travel-tour.comes of draft-animal-powered or mechanized work include ploughing (overturning with moldboards or chiseling with chisel shanks.

Conservation tillage, such as stubble mulch tillage, minimum tillage, reduced tillage, and no-tillage, leaves at least 30% of the soil surface covered by plant residue after planting to reduce erosion and surface runoff.
