Cover crops are known to decrease leaching of NO 3 -N during the winter fallow period in vegetable crop systems, but soil N dynamics following cover crop incorporation are not well understood. The ability of microbes and plants to assimilate and retain N from cover crop residue was studied in a sandy soil in a field under intensive vegetable production in California. The purpose was to describe changes in soil responses and N fates after adding a 15 N-labeled cover crop under field management… CONTINUE READING
