The operation, practice, or art of tilling or preparing land for seed, and keeping the ground in a proper state for the growth of crops.
A place tilled or cultivated; cultivated land.
Plowing, seedbed preparation, and cultivation practices.
mechanical disturbance of the soil by using various implements to alter the soil structure; usually done to create a seedbed, kill weeds or increase water entry ( see reduced (or minimum) tillage)
1). The mechanical alteration of some physical properties of the soil to provide a condition appropriate for crop growth. 2). To cultivate the land, to gain moisture in the soil.
The use of implements to cultivate the soil in the preparation of seed-beds and root-beds for crops.

The act of preparing the soil by mechanical manipulations for crop production.
A method for draining the land of water, for the plantation of crops. The use of a pottery tube or pipe is common.
arable land that is worked by plowing and sowing and raising crops
the cultivation of soil for raising crops
Mechanical manipulation of soil, usually associated with agriculture in terms of crop production.
The mechanical manipulation of soil performed to nurture crops. Tillage can be performed to accomplish a number of tasks including: seedbed preparation, weed control, and crop chemical incorporation.
The operation of implements through the soil to prepare seedbeds and rootbeds, control weeds and brush, aerate the soil, and cause faster breakdown of organic matter and minerals to release plant foods (USEPA, 1993).
The mechanical manipulation of soil for any purpose but usually to modify the soil physical characteristics to promote crop growth.
preparation of soil, crops, and gardens. Helps reduce wind erosion.
Tillage, or cultivation (a term which also has broader meanings related to the raising of plants in general) is the agricultural preparation of the soil by digging it up. Tillage can also mean the land that is tilled.
