Case study 1 ran by UPCT and focus on the Use of soil biodiversity to reduce soil-borne diseases/pests incidence and increase nutrient availability in potatoes cropped in multiple cropping and rotations was selected by EIP AGRI to include as an inspirational idea.

Take a look here:

Finding adequate crop rotations/multiple cropping to manage soil biodiversity, was not performed so far. Assessment of PGPB on soil biodiversity, since it has been proved their efficiency to enhance yields, but little is known about their effect on native microbial communities and time evolution. Maybe plant combination and organic matter addition could enhance native soil biodiversity with no need for bioaugmentation.
