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

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

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.
