Abstract: -Conservation practices are important in improving the environmental protection of agroecosystems in semiarid regions, as these are considered to be fragile environments. Soil-quality indicators are useful elements in evaluating the impact of some agricultural management practices, and the use of recognized indicators which are able to be measured by farmers is an innovative approach that seeks to integrate both scientific and local knowledge. This study aimed to evaluate the impact of various management pract… Show more

“…However, the results suggest an increasing trend in OM in the intercropping of maize with U. ruziziensis, and this increase was observed in the next season. In addition, to the effect of the root system, the increase in OM favors the formation and stabilization of soil aggregates, improving soil structure (Araújo et al, 2013).…”

“…Neste sentido, os consórcios agroecológicos representam importantes alternativas, pois além de sustentarem a produção (SILVA et al, 2013), favorecem a estrutura do solo (ARAÚJO et al, 2013), a diversidade da fauna do solo e da flora, mesmo quando comparados às áreas de vegetação nativa (ALMEIDA et al, 2009).…”

“…Outros autores, como Alcázar et al (2019), também ressaltam a importância de avaliar os modelos de produção alternativos, de forma participativa, pois isso contribui para atingir as metas de sustentabilidade, além de favorecer a redução do êxodo rural. Neste sentido, Araújo et al (2013) enfatizam a importância da utilização de indicadores reconhecidos e possíveis de serem mensurados por agricultores, por ser uma abordagem inovadora que busca integrar conhecimentos científico e local.…”
