Do Cover Crop And Soil-Mediated Legacy Influence Succeeding Wheat Production? – Sailesh Sigdel, Amitava Chatterjee - Communications in Soil Science and Plant Analysis 2020

Biotic interaction of cover crops (CCs) can have a legacy effect on succeeding crops mediated by changes in nutrient dynamics. Depending on species, CCs influence nitrogen (N) dynamics by sequestering N and subsequent N release. Interactions of three CC species, Austrian Pea (Pisum sativum L.), winter rye (Secale cereal L.), and winter camelina (Camelina sativa L.), and three different soils were studied under greenhouse conditions on wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) grain yield and soil N availability.
