Innovative cropping systems to reduce N inputs and maintain wheat yields by inserting grain legumes and cover crops in southwest France Plaza Bonilla, Daniel; Nolot, Jean-Marie; Raffaillac, Didier; Justes, Éric (Elsevier, 2017)The reduction in crop diversity and specialization of cereal-based cropping systems have led to high dependence on synthetic nitrogen (N) fertilizer in many areas of the globe. This has exacerbated environmental degradation ...
Carbon footprint of cropping systems with grain legumes and cover crops: A case-study in SW France Plaza Bonilla, Daniel; Nogué-Serra, Irene; Raffaillac, Didier; Cantero-Martínez, Carlos; Justes, Éric (Elsevier, 2018-09-12)Agriculture contributes to a significant proportion of global emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) but can also participate in climate change mitigation. The introduction of legumes in crop rotations reduces the dependence ...
Grain legume-based rotations managed under conventional tillage need cover crops to mitigate soil organic matter losses Plaza Bonilla, Daniel; Nolot, Jean-Marie; Passot, Sixtine; Raffaillac, Didier; Justes, Éric (Elsevier, 2016)Inserting legumes in low-input innovative cropping systems can represent a good strategy to reduce current N fertilizer dependency while enhancing ecosystem services. However, although the impact of the use of legumes as ...
