The dairy manure combined with green manuring
significantly increased biomass of maize at all DMA rates (p < 0.05), and maize biomass in the mudflat saline soil increased with increasing DMA rate.

combined with chemical fertilizer in a Mollisol in China.
Green manure crop is cultivated either in that place where green manuring
is going to be done or can be brought from a distance.
Organic sources like farm yard manure (FYM), poultry manure (PM), green manuring
and compost etc not supply the organic matters but also increase the fertility status of soil (Change et al., 1991; Brady, 1996; Chung et al., 2000; Keupper and Gegner, 2004).
Therefore, recent interest in manuring
has reemerged because of high prices of inorganic fertilizers and the importance of green, farmyard and other types of organic manures that provide long term soil productivity besides meeting nutrient requirements becomes obvious.
