Nutrient cycling and uptake in conservation agriculture production systems in the Andean region
Our project conducted multi-year cropping system experiments in two sub-watersheds in Ecuador: a pasture-potato system in the Illangama (3400 m), and a beans-maize system in the Alumbre (2000 m). All experiments included ...
A new nitrogen index for assessment of nitrogen management of Andean mountain cropping systems of Ecuador
