Watch it on:

ReMIX aims to promote mixed crops cultivation throughout Europe, going also against the background of climate change, since mixed crops provide more stable yields and in some cases better quality. The question addressed in this video is: do we need our own breeding for mixed crops? Or is it enough to combine the best available varieties with each other? Benedikt Haug (FiBL) wants to find the answer in his dissertation. In his field trials, he combines a large set of European pea varieties with various European barley varieties. In the video he shares the first results.
