Nutrient input–output balances are often used as indicators for the sustainability of land use systems. In a case study on plot scale in Central Sulawesi, Indonesia, we measured nutrient input–output balances of natural rainforest and two unfertilized land use systems (maize, and coffee/cacao agroforestry). These are the two major land use systems on converted rainforest sites in this part of Sulawesi. We wanted to test if (a) plant nutrient balances are negative, (b) which pathway is most… CONTINUE READING
