A field experiment was carried out in Trikala area (central Greece), involving the cultivation of fiber sorghum as energy crop after an intercrop cultivation of faba bean as cover crop in the period 2007-2009. Experimental design was a factorial split plot involving two factors: a) nitrogen dressings in 2 treatments e.g. 0, 150 kg/ha for sorghum and b) cover crop intercropping in 3 treatments: i. harvested before the sowing of the energy crop, ii. incorporated...
