Palojärvi, Ansa (2008) Impact of crop species and tillage on potentially suppressive soil microbes. In: NJF Report, Nordic Association of Agricultural Scientists, 4 (3), p. 3.
The results suggest that diversity of soil microbial community can be affected by selection of crop species. Management of the resident soil microbial community by reduced tillage together with crop rotation holds promise as a means to diminish the activity of soil born plant pathogens and to improve plant health.
