The effect of green manures with papilionaceous plants on the yielding of white cabbage and onion was studied. The
catch crop intended for green manure were sown at the turn of March and April and ploughed down in the first ten
days of June. In the first year after ploughing-down of green manures, white cabbage, and in the second onion were
cultivated. The greatest amount of organic matter and macroelements were supplied to soil with field pea. In the
cultivation of cabbage the mixture of vetch and field pea showed the highest yield-stimulating value. Onion cultivation
following the ploughing-down of the examined catch crops caused an increase in yields in comparison with the growth
after farmyard manure and without organic fertilization.
