Summary

The aim is to develop innovative and feasible agro-environmental technology for
improvement of environmental sustainability of cultivation methods by increasing soil crop cover
taking advantage of ecosystem services of soil microbes to suppress crop pathogens as an alternative
system for chemical control. Studies were conducted at six long term experimental field sites with
no-till and till treatment plots cultivated mainly with spring cereals. Four automatic continuous
monitoring stations were established (2009) on two experimental fields.
