Summary

In the Greenresilient project, Agroecological Service Crops (ASCs) were introduced and tested in organic greenhouse production systems. ASCs can be used as a diversification strategy to contribute to soil fertility, plant nutrition and to reduce weed, pest and disease prevalence in the following crop. This leaflet explains why and how ASCs can be an innovative tool for provisioning ecological services in Southern European greenhouses.


EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Agroecological Service Crops in greenhouse production.
What problem does the tool address?:Intensively managed organic greenhouses are challenged with balancing crop rotation, attracting beneficial insects and balancing water and nutrient cycles, while decreasing the pressure from pest arthropods, crop diseases and weeds.
What solution does the tool offer?:Agroecological service crops are an innovative tool for provisioning ecological services in Southern European greenhouses. They can be used as a diversification strategy to contribute to soil fertility, plant nutrition and to reduce weed, pest and disease prevalence in the following crop.
