Impacts of farming systems on soil mineral nitrogen levels in irrigated processing tomatoes

Impacts of farming systems on soil mineral nitrogen levels in irrigated processing tomatoes

Acta Horticulturae (542): 321-332

Precise management of soil mineral nitrogen (N) is necessary to optimize the profitability of a farming system and to minimize groundwater pollution by reducing N leaching. Organic and low-input farming systems are alternatives to conventional systems for sustainable soil fertility. Little information is available, however, on the effects of these farming systems on soil mineral N availability.
