Abstract In this review, we draw together research on the use of green and brown manures in wheat cropping systems in Mediterranean-type environments in the light of contemporary pressures on cropping systems including changing climates, increasing costs and declining profit margins. Green and brown manuring have been demonstrated to have benefits in terms of weed control, delaying the development of resistance to herbicides, reducing populations of disease organisms, altering soil water, soil… CONTINUE READING
