Summary

The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of conventional and organic farming on soil
hydrolytic activity (FDA). The experiment consisted of five-field crop rotation with three organic systems:
Org 0 without winter cover crops (as control), Org I with winter cover crops and Org II with winter cover
crops plus composted manure; and two conventional farming systems: Conv I as control (no fertiliser use)
and Conv II (with mineral N). The results show increase of FDA in all systems in 2013. Within the average
of 2012-2014 the FDA is the lowest in Conv. I and the highest in Org II system.
