Summary

There is an increased competition for land used in food or energy production (Harvey & Pilgrim, 2011) that necessitates a functional intensification. Can a cropping system be designed to produce high-quality food crops, biogas and fertilizer in the same cropping season, while minimizing both the negative impact on the local aquatic environment and greenhouse gas emissions? The present study investigates this challenge, focusing on crop nitrogen (N) supply and the production of renewable energy on stockless organic farms.
