Summary

Although catch crops and green manures are known to greatly influence nitrogen loss and availability for the succeeding crop, an experiment with catch crops and green manures on a long-term nutrient depletion trial showed no ability to mobilize phosphorous and potassium resources on this low fertility site. The study reported here indicated that this may be due to the limited biomass productivity of catch crops on such low fertility soils.
