ABSTRACT Relay intercropping can increase nutrient cycling, cropping system diversity, and profitability, all factors that can contribute to agricultural sustainability. A frost-tolerant crop interseeded into sweet corn is an example of an opportunity for relay intercropping. Four forage brassicas (‘Premier’ kale, ‘Sparta’ rape, ‘Rondo’ turnip and ‘Forage Star’ turnip) were interseeded into ‘NK 199’ sweet corn at last cultivation (‘early’ interseeding) and at about blister stage of the corn… CONTINUE READING
