The contribution of spring crops to integrated crop rotations

Aspects of Applied Biology ( 47): 343-348
The contribution of spring crops to integrated crop rotations
Integrated cropping at the Scottish site of the Integrated Farming Systems Experiment has achieved large reductions in nitrogen fertilizer and fungicide inputs by substituting spring for winter crops at two points out of five in the rotation. There has been reduced slug damage and less leachable nitrate in the soil after harvest.
