In a wheat/grain corn/soya rotation, green manure as the main source of nitrogen, complemented in the grain corn year by a quickly available manure-based nitrogen starter fertilizer, can be used to obtain profitable organic grain corn yields while limiting phosphorus pollution. The project was conducted at IRDA’s Organic Agriculture Innovation Platform.
