Effect of cover crop, between wheat and maize on nitrate leaching and drainage. Lysimeter study on two soil texture types

Proceedings of the third congress of the European Society for Agronomy, Padova University, Abano Padova, Italy, 18-22 September 1994: 776-777

Effect of cover crop, between wheat and maize on nitrate leaching and drainage. Lysimeter study on two soil texture types

In lysimeter studies in 1986-1990 with silt clay soil and sandy clay silt soil, the effect of cover crop in a rotation of wheat/maize + wheat/Sinapis alba (cover crop from late Aug. to Dec.) or no cover crop/maize on soil nitrate leaching was investigated. N uptake and water consumption by the cover crop were the same on the 2 soil types. NO3 leaching was low after the cover crop, even when residual mineral N was high.
