Article - Field fodder conversion using electricity – Negative effects on earthworms and changes in labile carbon fractions


The development and use of innovative, conservative methods for weed control and field fodder conversion are urgently required to reduce herbicide use and to overcome drawbacks of mechanical methods. Recently, electrical methods are introduced into market. Although these methods seem to allow promising results concerning mortification of undesired plants, side-effects have not been assessed so far. The outcomes of this scientific study can be read here.
