Short-term Cover Crop Decomposition in Organic and Conventional Soils: Characterization of Soil C, N, Microbial and Plant Pathogen Dynamics

Abstract

Stages of oat–vetch cover crop decomposition were characterized over time in terms of carbon and nitrogen cycling, microbial activity and damping-off pathogen dynamics in organically and conventionally managed soils in a field and a controlled incubation experiment. A measurement of relative growth consisting of radial growth of a fungal colony over non… (More)
