Introduction of soybean and sorghum as a catch-crop in continuous cropping of durum wheat


, : Introduction of soybean and sorghum as a catch-crop in continuous cropping of durum wheat. Proceedings, second congress of the European Society for Agronomy, Warwick University 23-28 August 1992: 352-353

In trials at Foggia with durum wheat Isa, wheat was continuously monocropped, or soyabeans Hodgson or sorghum NK121 were direct drilled after harvesting the wheat (within the first 10 d of July) and harvested before 30 Oct. to allow autumn sowing of wheat. Dry conditions in 1987-91 limited average yields to 2.1 t/ha for soyabeans and 6.0 t/ha for sorghum. Wheat yields were increased after catch crops.
