The objective of this study was to advance our understanding of these complex relationships by further developing and applying a systematic method for evaluating the effects of conventional, integrated and organic apple production systems on soil physical, chemical, and biological properties using a modified soil quality index. This index utilizes 1998 soils data… CONTINUE READING
