disease incidence becomes unimportant. There are in
soils degrees of ‘resistance’ against pathogens. Nonphytopathogenic nematodes play an integral role in the
phenomenon of suppressiveness of soils against plant
pathogens. These nematodes can ...

The Biology of Soil
... Soil forms a thin mantle over the Earth’s surface and acts as the interface
between the atmosphere and lithosphere, the outermost shell of the Earth.
It is a multiphase system, consisting of mineral material, plant roots, water

A cover crop is a crop planted primarily to manage soil erosion, soil fertility, soil quality, water, weeds, pests, diseases, biodiversity and wildlife in an agroecosystem (Lu et al. 2000), an ecological system managed and largely shaped by humans across a range of intensities to produce food, feed, or fiber. Currently, not many countries are known for using the cover crop method.Cover crops are of interest in sustainable agriculture as many of them improve the sustainability of agroecosystem attributes and may also indirectly improve qualities of neighboring natural ecosystems. Farmers choose to grow and manage specific cover crop types based on their own needs and goals, influenced by the biological, environmental, social, cultural, and economic factors of the food system in which farmers operate (Snapp et al. 2005).
