The mineralisation of cover crops releases nitrogen for future crops, but it may also cause leaching of nitrate which can be harmful to the aquatic environment. Researchers from the Department of Agroecology at Aarhus University have investigated different cover crops and how they are turned over in the soil and how this may release nitrogen to…
