Effect of ecological and integrated arable farming systems on crop productivity and soil fertility



Effect of ecological and integrated arable farming systems on crop productivity and soil fertility



Designing and testing crop rotations for organic farming Proceedings from an international workshop: 297-304



Integrated and ecological arable farming systems were established on brown clay-loamy soil in the south Slovakia in 1990. The chemical inputs in the integrated system were replaced in the ecological system by a multifunctional crop rotation, ecological plant nutrition, and mechanical and physical weed control. A simple model for carbon balance in agro-ecosystems was proposed. The results obtained by the model were satisfactory compared to field data.
