Application of the DNDC model to tile-drained Illinois agroecosystems: model comparison of conventional and diversified rotations

Using the DeNitrification–DeComposition (DNDC) model we compare conventional, fertilizer-driven corn–soybean rotations to alternative management scenarios which include the management of cereal rye cover crops and corn–soybean–wheat–red clover rotations. We conduct our analysis for tile-drained, silty clay loam soils of Illinois. DNDC simulations suggest… CONTINUE READING
