Summary

We agree with Zoebl that alternative farming systems deserve more attention in order to develop healthy production systems. In fact, the environmental advantages of organic farming in comparison with intensive conventional production methods have been shown in many cases (1). In our study, we showed a better protection of soil fertility in organic systems compared with conventional systems.
