The contribution of spring crops to integrated crop rotations

, : The contribution of spring crops to integrated crop rotations. Aspects of Applied Biology ( 47): 343-348

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.

During 1997-2003, field experiments were conducted in Lithuania under Endocalcari-Endohypogleyic Combisol to test the possibility of shortening crop rotations and to determine the best preceding crops that will give less weed infestation.

In field trials in 1990-96, a simple mixture of spring barley and oats was sown near Olsztyn, Poland as 25, 50 or 75% of a 4-course rotation and compared with similar rotations in which barley and oats were grown separately. The mixture gave a 13....
