Final Report: CSO00028 - Management of microbial soil function for improved productivity in intensive cropping systems

Plain text source: 
The potential for changes in soil microbial function for improved productivity through intensive cropping systems were evaluated in this project... A resilience test in which soils are exposed to repeated wet-dry cycles provides a suitable assay to determine changes in the stability of microbial functions... Results from the project demonstrated the likelihood of changes in microbial functions relevant for increased nutrient efficiency and productivity by altering C inputs through the use of intensive cropping systems...
