Abstract
Chemical and biological soil parameters were compared between organically and conventionally cultivated leeks on sandy soils in Flanders, Belgium. Organic carbon and nematode abundance were significantly greater in organic fields, bulk density and soil pH significantly lower, but indices of nematode community structure did not reflect these differences. A residual effect of organic enrichment in organic fields was suggested by a generally greater channel index, indicating a more fungal-mediated decomposition pathway. Differences in soil texture remained present despite a sampling aimed at consistency of soil type.
