resp: dr. C. Tomasoni funding: Regione Lombardia duration: 3 years

General aim: Investigations on the maintenance of the soil biological fertility with cereal and forage cropping in the Po Valley

Main achievements of CRA-FLC:

  • Definition of the most appropriate agronomic practices to maintain, or to increase, the soil fertility
  • Assessment of the effects of crop rotations and input levels on soil organic matter and biological fertility
  • Recognition of the advantage of manure over slurry application on the increase of soil organic matter and the subsequent improvement of soil biological fertility
