Effects of tillage systems on energy and carbon balance in north-eastern Italy
An energy analysis of three cropping systems with different intensities of soil tillage (conventional tillage, CT; ridge tillage, RT; no tillage, NT) was done in a loamy-silt soil (fulvi-calcaric… Expand
Effectiveness of buffer strips in removing pollutants in runoff from a cultivated field in North-East Italy
Abstract Buffer strips are an efficient and economical way to reduce agricultural nonpoint source pollution. Local researches are necessary to gain information on buffer performance, with particular… Expand
Effects of five macrophytes on nitrogen remediation and mass balance in wetland mesocosms
Abstract Five macrophyte species, Carex elata All., (Cae), Juncus effusus L. (Jue), Typhoides arundinacea (L.) Moench (syn. Phalaris arundinacea L.) (Pha) var. picta, Phragmites australis (Cav.)… Expand
Ecological interpretation of weed flora dynamics under different tillage systems
Abstract In northern Italy, on soil managed with three different tillage systems (conventional tillage, ridge tillage, and no-tillage) and submitted to standard cultural practices (crop rotation, and… Expand
Performance of a narrow buffer strip in abating agricultural pollutants in the shallow subsurface water flux.
The performance of a narrow buffer strip in abating dissolved P, electrical conductivity and herbicides (terbuthylazine, alachlor, nicosulfuron, pendimethalin, linuron) in subsurface water coming… Expand
Biomass production and N balance of giant reed (Arundo donax L.) under high water and N input in Mediterranean environments
Abstract This study aimed to evaluate the productivity of Arundo donax under good water and N availability coming from non-conventional sources, in different Italian environments (Padova and Bologna… Expand
Controlled drainage and wetlands to reduce agricultural pollution: a lysimetric study.
Controlled drainage and wetlands could be very effective practices to control nitrogen pollution in the low-lying agricultural plains of northeast Italy, but they are not as popular as in other… Expand
A review on the main affecting factors of greenhouse gases emission in constructed wetlands
Constructed wetlands (CWs) are natural-like systems for wastewater treatment capable to remove both pollutants and nutrients without additional energy demand. In these systems, gaseous compounds are… Expand
Performance of a floating treatment wetland for in-stream water amelioration in NE Italy
Floating treatment wetlands are innovative systems and their processes are still scarcely known within the traditional methods of phytodepuration. To gain initial information on their performance and… Expand
Performance of a hybrid constructed wetland treating piggery wastewater
Abstract A full-scale hybrid constructed wetland (HCW) designed to treat 5 m3/d of piggery wastewaters built in 2008 on a private pig farm in northern Italy was monitored from May to December 2009 to… Expand
