Cover crop reference values: Effective organic matter and nitrogen uptake

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

Reference value for effective organic matter (EOM) values are used for calculating the organic matter addition to the soil. In order to update and supplement current EOM reference values of cover crops, biomass data was gathered and an experiment was conducted to determine the humification coefficient, which is used to calculate the EOM. The results did lead to a change in the current humification coefficient values. For ten monoculture cover crops model-based EOM and nitrogen uptake reference values were given in tables per half a month. For some species, reference values were also given per 10 cm crop height.
