Nitrogen Use And Biomass Production in two Different Energy Crop/Legume Intercrop Systems in Central Greece

D.F. Beslemes, N.G. Danalatos & P. Efthimiadis
To evaluate the effect of intercropping maize and fibre sorghum with faba bean, compared to monocrop cultivation, on yields (dry matter, grain yield and N uptake) as well as on nitrogen utilization efficiency (NUtE) and N fertilizer recovery fraction, a field experiment was carried out in central Greece, on a fertile, clayey to loamy textured soil, classified as Vertisol. Four dressings of N-application were combined with either incorporating or harvesting the cover crop. The recovery...
