The Effect of Green Manuring on the Physical Properties of Temperate-Area Soils
Green manuring has received little attention by the research community in the past few decades. But with renewed concern about our soil resources, particularly soil degradation, green manuring is increasingly appealing as a means to reduce losses of soil organic matter, compaction, and soil erosion and still maintain economic returns. Recent attempts to reevaluate the usefulness of green manures have been hindered by a lack of readily available and current information. This paper attempts to compile and synthesize what information is presently available.
