Abstract

•Crucifer-legume mixtures are as efficient as sole crucifers to catch soil nitrate.•Mixtures provide a better nitrogen green manure service than sole crucifers.•Mixtures provide nitrate catch crop and N green manure services.•Crucifers dominated in mixtures but legumes grew sufficiently and were complementary.•A wide range of species can be used to maximise N-related ecosystem services in crucifer-legume mixtures.
