Summary

Soil organic carbon (SOC) concentration is an indicator for assessing soil quality. SOC concentration can be increased by using appropriate crop and soil management which can
increase organic matter input into soil and decrease its mineralization rate (Follett, 2001). The aim of this study was to investigate SOC content and dynamics in four inorganic and two organic cropping systems in five crop rotation. Data presented in this paper covers the first rotation from
years 2008 to 2012.
