English term or phrase: no-till agriculture
The role of ***no-till agriculture*** in mitigating climate change is "widely overstated", according to a new review published (http://gmwatch.org/index.php/news/archive/2014/15563) in Nature.

Auf Linguee findet sich als Übersetzung "Landwirtschaft mit Direktsaat(en)". Aber ich erhalte keine 10 Google-Treffer dafür. Gibt es eventuell einen gängigeren Begriff?

Direktsaat-Landwirtschaft/Landwirtschaft ohne Pflug

There's even a magazine for it - LOP


Landwirtschaftsministerium V. Sachsen calls it Direktsaat

"Direktsaat ist definiert als eine Bestellung ohne jegliche Bodenbearbeitung seit der vorangegangenen Ernte. "

Browsing on the Web turns up hundreds of sites mentioning Direktsaat.
