Sustainable agriculture for vegetable production in Mississippi

Journal of the Mississippi Academy of Sciences 41(3): 136-142
Sustainable agriculture for vegetable production in Mississippi
In a study conducted on a Memphis silt loam at Alcorn State University in 1993 and 1994, the influence of a conventional (chemical-intensive) monocropping system, transitional (reduced chemical) and organic (non-chemical) farming systems was investigated on the yield potential of Marion tomatoes and on soil characteristics. Estimated costs and returns for the production of tomatoes and its companion crops (Vigna sinensis and collards in a 3-year rotation) were also investigated.
