The diversification of cropping systems is still limited due to barriers occurring at the farm level, along value chains as well as in the coordination between actors. What are the policies needed to effectively foster crop diversification in EU countries?
This article identifies the variety of crop diversification strategies implemented by European farmers and explores the extent to which barriers to crop diversification can be related to the proximity of innovation settings with dominant food systems.
What are the main production systems for cereals in Wallonia today? How is the sector organised? What developments can be envisaged, and with what consequences in terms of production and pesticide use?
This article identifies twelve factors impeding wider adoption of multi-resistant cultivars. These factors explain why current wheat-cropping systems are maintained in a ‘pesticide lock-in’ situation.
