Looking for an innovative way to improve the quality of your soil? Consider revisiting an old technology: green manure. A green manure is a crop that is grown and then incorporated into the soil while still green. Before synthetic fertilizers, this practice was widely used to improve soils and provide nutrients to crops. This publication gives an overview of the benefits and other factors involved in using green manures in potato cropping systems, including pest management, disease suppression, cost, and labor requirements.
