Italian long-term field experiment with cropping systems for annual row crops

The Italian cluster of WP4 (annual row crops systems) is studying three different cropping systems based on the same 3-year crop sequence (process tomato-chicory-melon-faba bean-fennel) but with a decreasing level of soil disturbance are being compared in terms of crop performances, economic viability, soil fertility and weed abundance and composition.
