The hereby report provides the solutions identified to address the barriers to crop diversification at each level of the value chains and further discuss the conditions for enabling shifts towards more sustainable food systems.
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.
Despite several decades of research, relationships leading to competition or facilitation between associated crops remain unclear. This poster presents an attempt to compile available knowledge on intercropping in order to improve its understanding.
