Cover crops have gained popularity in cereal cropping, where they improve soil fertility and quality. The potential for using cover crops in weed management is an interesting but little addressed option in organic arable crop production. Some comments on feasible measures for cereal production are extracted in this round-up from the references and information relevant to the Nordic-Baltic region.

Summary translation

Peitekasvien (aluskasvit, kerääjäkasvit) käyttö on lisääntynyt viljanviljelyssä. Niiden hyödyntäminen rikkakasvien integroidussa torjunnassa on kiinnostava mutta vähän tutkittu menetelmä. Kirjallisuuskatsaukseen on koottu Pohjoismaiden ja Baltian alueelle soveltuvaa julkaistua tietoa aiheesta.
