Tiivistelmä

The aim of this project is to improve productivity, biodiversity and soil fertility in intensive organic vegetable cropping system. This will be achieved by:
1) Developing and implementing new fertility strategies using manure and plant-based soil-improvers and fertilizers in strip-cropping system of outdoor vegetable (two crops grown together in alternating rows or small strips) to increase soil biodiversity, soil fertility, nutrient release and carbon storage.

2) Developing and implementing innovative risk management strategies especially against the most harmful plant diseases threatening productivity and sustainability of strip-cropping systems utilizing new fertility strategies.
