This chapter reviews the issues related to the responses of crops and soil fertility to management strategies aimed to conserve soil carbon, especially for Mediterranean-Temperate conditions. It reports the main results from field experiments conducted in three different Italian sites in order to compare traditional and innovative soil treatments for carbon sequestration. Field agronomic treatments included traditional and minimum tillage, green manuring, two rates of mature compost application, and spreading of water-soluble Fe–porphyrin. Their effects were tested in different sites representing distinct pedo-climatic onditions.

Abstract

This chapter reviews the issues related to the responses of crops and soil fertility to management strategies aimed to conserve soil carbon, especially for Mediterranean-Temperate conditions. It reports the main results from field experiments conducted in three different Italian sites in order to compare traditional and innovative soil treatments for carbon sequestration. Field agronomic treatments included traditional and minimum tillage, green manuring, two rates of mature compost application, and spreading of water-soluble Fe–porphyrin. Their effects were tested in different sites representing distinct pedo-climatic onditions.
