UK: Short-term green manures for intensively cultivated horticultural soils

Despite growing interest in green manures (crops grown to improve and protect the soil), using them in intensive vegetable rotations is particularly difficult. This has led to few large-scale vegetable and salad growers using them.

This AHDB case study details the main green manure species suitable for use in high value vegetable and salad rotations, and summarises the benefits they can bring.

It outlines demonstration trials undertaken at a large outdoor leafy salad-growing business and describes experiences gained by the grower.
