Relay cropping of winter wheat - the effect on weed biomass and risk of nitrogen leaching

Magnuski, Ewa; Bergkvist, Göran


Relay cropping is defined as the growing of two or more crops simutaneously during part of the life cycle of each crop. The main challenge of the summer crop/winter wheat intercropping system is to find methods of management that minimise yield losses due to competition, pest and diseases. The aim of the present project is to evaluate this system regarding its effect on weeds, energy inputs, available soil mineral nitrogen, nitrogen use and economic yields
