Agronomic and economic evaluation of conventional, low input and organic farming systems in central Italy

IFOAM 2000: the world grows organic Proceedings 13th International IFOAM Scientific Conference, Basel, Switzerland, 28 to 31 August, 2000: 393

Agronomic and economic evaluation of conventional, low input and organic farming systems in central Italy

A crop rotation including maize, wheat, tomatoes, durum wheat, green dwarf beans and spinach was compared under conventional, low input and organic farming systems on a clay loam soil at Pisa, Italy, in 1993-96. Tomato yields were not significantly different under the 3 systems, whereas yields of the other crops were generally lowest with organic farming.
