Fliessbach, Andreas; Hany, Roland; Rentsch, Daniel; Frei, Robert and Eyhorn, Frank (2000) DOC trail: soil organic matter quality and soil aggregate stability in organic and conventional soils. In: Alföldi, Thomas; Lockeretz, W. and Niggli, Urs (Eds.) Proceedings 13th International IFOAM Scientific Conference, vdf Hochschulverlag, Zürich, Switzerland.
Soil organic matter quality is affected by the agricultural systems of the DOC trial. System effects on the chemical composition, however, were smaller than those on the living organisms in soil and their functions. A close correlation was found between soil structure and microbial biomass indicating that microbes are playing an important role in soil structural stability.
