Effect of agricultural inputs and essential oils on the soil of vegetables in Colombia's Caribbean region

The contribution of vegetables to food security and economic development in Colombia, as well as to environmental problems worldwide, justifies the interest to design sustainable production strategies for the agro-chain. This study was developed to evaluate the effect of the application of essential...
