Summary

This practice abstract gives practical recommendations for crop growth and nutrient dynamics in intercropping systems using different fertilization strategies. The project studied the effects on organic vegetable production in field trials in four European countries. In most cases, yield in intercropping systems was equally high compared to monocropping. Alternative fertilisation strategies maintained or improved soil quality, while not compromising yield.


EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Intercropping and fertilisation - learn more about it!
What problem does the tool address?:Organic vegetable production systems aim at maximising soil quality and crop productivity while minimising environmental impact by closing nutrient cycles. Proper fertilisation strategies to achieve these combined goals are needed.
What solution does the tool offer?:Intercropping was tested over two growing seasons with different vegetable crop combinations in five different countries. The impact of alternative animal and plant based fertilisers, composts and other soil improvers, on nutrient availability and crops’ performance was assessed.
