Abstract

Selected soil properties were compared after 2–6 yr of grassland set-aside (GLSA) management and an annual cropping system (potato). In general, GLSA and nearby arable cropping fields had similar soil properties, with some improvements of aeration porosity, aggregate stability, bulk density, and mechanical resistance following short-term GLSA management.
