Abstract. Green manuring has received little attention by the research community in the past few decades. But with renewed concern about our soil resources, particularly soil degradation, green manuring is increasingly appealing as a means to reduce losses of soil organic matter, compaction, and soil erosion and still maintain economic by: If sufficient water is available, green manures-usually nitrogen fixing legumes -can be planted before or after harvesting the main crop, with its subsequent use as.

A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Depending on location, planting date and soil fertility, they produce up to 8, lb. biomass/A. Because of their fast fall growth, brassicas are well-suited to capture soil nitrogen (N) remaining after crop harvest.

The amount of nitrogen captured is mainly related to biomass accumulation and the amount of N available in the soil profile. Organic farming has been identified as promoting soil quality even though tillage is used for weed suppression.

Adopting zero tillage and other conservation tillage practices can enhance soil quality in cropping systems where synthetic agri-chemicals are relied on for crop nutrition and weed control.

Attempts have been made to eliminate tillage completely when growing several Cited by: For example, alfalfa is relatively sensitive to soil acidity, and does best in soil pH range of to The bacteria that fix atmospheric nitrogen for alfalfa do best in this soil pH range.

Soil acidity issues can be corrected with liming, and should be addressed before planting. Remember that the uptake of most of these nutrients depends on maintaining the pHof the soil in the appropriate range. nitrogen Nitrogen is quickly taken up by grasses and promotes growth. Nitrogen application on a mixed grass-legume pasture will tend to shade out the clovers and allow the grasses to predominate.

Animal urine is high in nitrogen. The effect of soil moisture and temperature on soil nitrate, ammonium, and carbon dioxide can determine the accuracy of prediction for nitrogen availability (Clark, ).

A soil health test conducted by V6 growth stage would be useful in corn production to allow farmers to adjust the amount of additional nitrogen to apply according to the soil. Full text of "Abstracts of recent published material on soil and water conservation: number 22" See other formats.
