Abstract

Soil amendment is a viable alternative to chemical fumigants thanks its benefits on soil quality, microbial biodiversity, and plant health being valorized underused biomass. Nonetheless, the concepts of durability and stability for disease suppressive soils are became a critical issue in the advanced organic cropping systems. Although a comprehensive and critical literature is available, this paper briefly analyzes the governance of the soil organic amendments as an external source of organic matter and beneficial microbiota in view of new opportunities and technological advancements. Particularly, it discusses some possible solutions for developing the suppressive properties of the amended-soils by helping grower to well understand the complex processes/interactions that lead to soil suppressiveness from the most practical viewpoints according to the principles of green economy.
