    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Title Soil C and N storage in intercropping versus single cropping systems

Abstract In this project, I explore how intercropping affects soil C and N storage based upon a 7-yr field experiment and unravel the underlying mechanisms through investigating soil delta 15N and standing root biomass in two 1-yr field experiments. We found that intercropping enhanced both soil C and N storage compared to single cropping systems. The underlying mechanism include greater root biomass input, improved biological N fixation (or reduced gaseous N losses) as well as efficient N acquisition between functionally complementary intercropped species. These findings indicate that intercropping can improve long-term soil functioning while maintaining food production.
