A field trial was contacted in Larissa (central Greece) in 2008, to evaluate the effect of L.Culinaries green manure and rotation and N­fertilization on maize and kenaf productivity. The experiment was carried out on clay soil classified as Vertisol. The nitrogen use efficiency for maize and kenaf was also studied and estimated ­1 ­1 approximately 50KgKgfor maize and 63%KgKgfor kenaf. Maize seed yield showed a positive response in incorporation treatments and fluctuated between 9.8 t/ha...
