Cover crops (CC) are an important source of nitrogen (N) in organic farming systems. Only few data are available about the effect of management activities (liquid slurry amendments, crop residue management) on growth, nutrient uptake and biological N2 fixation (BNF) of a CC mixture. Furthermore, little information is available about the effect of CC harvesting on nutrient flows, nitrate leaching risk and soil mineral N supply of the succeeding main crop. The objectives of the presented field… CONTINUE READING
