Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

Green manures, also referred to as fertility building crops, may broadly be defined as crops grown for the benefit of the soil. This factsheet aims to help growers appreciate the financial implications of their use and the potential for computer models to help integrate them effectively into rotations. It draws on the findings of a number of projects funded by HDC, Defra and the EU. Two related factsheets address the selection of suitable species of green manures (25/10) and the benefits which they can bring (24/10).
