Summary

In crop rotations winter cover crops (WCC) can play a certain role in organic matter and plant nutrient formation. Under Nordic conditions the selection of crops for winter cover crops is quite limited. The aim of the present research was to explain the biomass and nutrients (N, P and K) formation by certain winter cover crops in an organic crop rotation. The effects of WCC on the following main crop yields were monitored.
